Federal Grants - Community Development Block Grant
The City of Bremerton is an Entitlement Community under the federally funded Community Development Block Grant Program. Funds are received annually from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for local projects that primarily benefit low income people.
Most Block Grant assistance is used for large-scale projects and programs that are carried out in partnership with local agencies and contractors. Currently the City of Bremerton does not have programs that can assist your household directly. If you need assistance for you or your household please feel free to contact the Housing Solutions Center 360-377-0053.
Upon advance request, the City will provide for interpretation or translation services to meet the needs of non-English speaking residents. The City will take appropriate actions to serve the needs of persons with disabilities.
