For YEAR 46, the City of Stamford expects to receive an entitlement grant estimated to be $900,000 and reallocate $90,000 in previous years CDBG funds.  In addition, the City of Stamford expects to receive an entitlement grant estimated to be $360,000 under the HOME Program.  Approximately $50,000 in program income is anticipated from repayments to the CDBG/HOME loan programs.
