About our Program

The City of Massillon has been designated as an Entitlement Community under the CDBG Program, and as such receives an annual allocation of Federal funds from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The City utilizes these CDBG funds to undertake a comprehensive program of housing and community development activities, including housing assistance, infrastructure improvements, economic development, public services, fair housing, and planning activities.

The City’s CDBG Program is designed to meet those goals and objectives identified in its Consolidated Plan for community development, in order to benefit low and moderate income persons and neighborhoods, and aid in the prevention and elimination of slums and blight.
