These are the income limits to qualify for HUD based programs such as CDBG.  These income limits are based on total household income from all sources and based on household size including all adults and children.  Some programs have lower income limits for qualification (e.g. 50% or 30%).

This page will serve as a centralized place for sub recipients of the three HUD grants programs that the City receives (CDBG, HOME, ESG) to come and get the necessary forms or review the necessary documents that they need to be in compliance with HUD rules and regulations.

Written Standards for Emergency Solutions Grant Program

Per federal regulations, the City has developed a set of written standards with respect to local administration and implementation of the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).  In addition to complying with federal regulations, recipients of ESG funding are also required to adhere to these written standards established by the City which are more stringent than federal standards.

ESG written standards are subject to change based upon enhanced compliance with federal regulations and current needs of community.

If you are looking for rental assistance, please contact the Binghamton Housing Authority at (607) 723-9491.

If you are looking for assistance in order to prevent homelessness or to move from a homeless situation, please contact 211 instead of contacting agencies directly.


HUD recognizes that there are times when a need arises in the community which requires a grantee to amend their Consolidated Plan or Annual Action Plan after it has already been approved.  In order to maintain transparency, HUD requires grantees to develop a Citizen Participation Plan which informs the community of the specific types of program changes that are considered a “substantial” change.  Substantial amendments require grantees to follow its Citizen Participation Plan and allow the community with at least a 30 day period to provide written comments to proposed amendments.

The Federal Fiscal Year 2017 planning process covering the period of September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018 is underway.  The process corresponds to three entitlement streams received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).  

Federal Fiscal Year 2017 entitlement allocations for the City of Binghamton are as follows:
