The HUD Entitlement unit administers four federal entitlement community grant programs provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development including:

In addition to the federal entitlement community development programs, the unit provides grant related support to city departments. It is our goal to provide a coordinated approach to grant application submission to avoid duplication of effort and internal competition.

Based on an assessment of citywide needs and priorities, trained, experienced staff works on site with departments and organizations to develop and submit high quality proposals. Furthermore, this program is designed to efficiently manage all federal, state, and other available funding sources received by the City of Norfolk.
