Every year the City of Nampa receives an entitlement grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to use for the benefit of low and moderate-income residents of the community. The city then reaches out to the community to solicit applications for projects that directly benefit low and moderate-income residents in the city and/or will help to eliminate slum and blight to garner the best and most efficient use of this money.
Projects in housing, community development, economic development and public services are all eligible to apply. HUD guidelines state that 51 percent of the project’s beneficiaries need to be documented low and moderate-income clients. Project beneficiaries need to be residents of the City of Nampa, and they need to be considered a priority in the city’s consolidated plan for housing and community development.
Previously funded projects included the Community Family Shelter, Meals on Wheels, crosswalk improvements, playground equipment, ADA improvements, emergency housing repair loans, Nampa Family Justice Center and senior transportation, among others.
