Federal Grants - Community Development Block Grant

2021-2025 City of Bremerton Consolidated Planning Survey

The City of Bremerton in collaboration with Kitsap County is soliciting input for the 2021-2025 Consolidated Plan and we need your help! The City of Bremerton receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) funding each year from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These funds are used to provide housing, economic opportunity, public facilities and infrastructure principally for low and moderate-income households and neighborhoods. 

The Consolidated Plan is a five-year planning document that describes housing and community development needs and offers strategies to address those identified needs. We want to hear from you about what types of activities you feel are important and your perception of critical needs in the community. In addition, we would like to gain an understanding of agencies in the City of Bremerton and the supportive role they play in the community. We greatly appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete the survey. 

There are two surveys available: one for Agencies, service providers, housing providers or local governments located here and one for the Public located here. If you are a staff member, or representative of an agency, service provider, housing provider or local government, please fill out the agency survey. If you are not, please fill out the public survey. Both surveys are very short in duration and will not take much of your time. Thank you!

Bremerton Homeownership Program

The City of Bremerton, in partnership with Community Frameworks, presents the Bremerton Homeownership Down Payment Assistance (DPA) Program. The program is designed to provide deferred payment, low-interest subordinate loans that make home buying affordable for eligible home buyers purchasing within the Bremerton City Limits. Funding for this program comes from the City of Bremerton’s HUD allocation of Federal HOME funds and is matched with DPA from other sources provided by Community Frameworks for up to 20% of the purchase price. Community Frameworks’ partner lenders have additional DPA available as well. 

For more information please visit the Housing Information webpage or contact Community Frameworks at 360-377-7738 ext. 2, or visit their website

Most Block Grant assistance is used for large-scale projects and programs that are carried out in partnership with local agencies and contractors. If you need emergency 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.
