Grant Programs

Picture1

Davis County administers several grant programs which are funded by federal or state resources. Each has different objectives and benefit different communities or residents of the County. These grant programs are listed below with summaries of their objectives, descriptions and application information.

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

This is a federally funded program for the provision of services & projects aimed at developing Davis County and aiding low to moderate income residents through organizations contracted with the County.


Planning, Process, Coordination and Institutional Structure

The County is governed by three Commissioners who maintain final approval authority over all CDBG projects undertaken within the Urban County CDBG program. In addition, each jurisdiction approves those projects sponsored by their respective cities through their individual processes. County CDBG grants are administered through the Davis County Clerk/Auditor's Office by Grant Auditor, Tony Zambrana. The County works closely with many agencies to provide a useful grant program for the residents of the County. Some of these agencies include the Davis Community Housing Authority, all included municipalities, and various businesses and nonprofit agencies operating within the County.


The Consolidated Plan

Davis County is responsible for the development, administration, and implementation of this Five-Year Consolidated Plan in accordance with the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program guidelines.

  • The CDBG program is used for the benefit of low and moderate income households. The Plan assesses the needs of Davis County in areas such as: housing, economic development, job creation, senior citizen and youth programs, lead-based paint hazards, ADA requirements, public utilities, curb, gutter, sidewalks, and streets.
  • The Plan is also used to address the needs of affordable housing as a method of improving low and moderate income areas of the County, and to provide home ownership opportunities for low and moderate income families.
  • This plan covers the five-year period from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2020.
  • The twelve municipalities that form the Urban County include Bountiful, West Bountiful, North Salt Lake, Woods Cross, Centerville, Farmington, Kaysville, Syracuse, West Point, Clinton Fruit Heights and Sunset along with the unincorporated areas of the County.
  • Clearfield and Layton are entitlement communities and participate in the CDBG program on their own, while South Weber chose not to participate in the Davis Urban County program.

Davis County CDBG Action Plan

Citizen Participation Plan

The County has drafted a Citizen Participation Plan as part of the Consolidated Plan process.

The plan also provides for technical assistance to groups representative of persons of low and moderate income in preparing proposals. In fact, Davis County staff meets with each applicant agency to refine projects for better proposals and also to answer any questions regarding regulations and processes prior to submittal.

The County and the municipalities all have active citizen processes ongoing for different activities within the jurisdictions.
