On Thursday, November 29, 2012 Murray City began accepting project proposals from interested applicants for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.

In order to be eligible for CDBG funds an applicant must meet one of the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Department’s national objectives of benefiting low- and moderate-income persons, preventing or eliminating slums or blight, or addressing an urgent community development need which poses a serious health or welfare threat.
