Community Development Block Grant

The Idaho Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) application handbook and grant administration manual contain guidelines and forms essential for carrying out a successful ICDBG project.

Whether you are preparing to submit an application or administering an awarded grant, it is important to use the most current versions of these materials to ensure you are complying with state and federal regulations that govern the ICDBG program. The most up-to-date, downloadable versions of the application handbook, grant administration manual and commonly used administrative forms can always be found here using the links below.  

Before the department allows an ICDBG project to begin, a city or county must demonstrate that a certified ICDBG Administrator will be under contract or on staff to manage the day-to-day activities associated with the grant. A list of ICDBG-certified grant administrators with their contact information is available below.
