These funds must be used to meet the needs of low-to-moderate income individuals and families, address slum or blight in Lee's Summit, or meet an urgent community need.

Lee's Summit is designated as an Entitlement Community under the CDBG program by HUD, which gives the City the authority to administer grant funds in our community.

Individuals are not eligible to apply.
