Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), supports a wide range of community development activities to build stronger and more resilient communities. As an entitlement grantee, the City of Warner Robins receives an annual allocation of funds which allows us to develop a plan to address priority needs, create suitable living environments, provide decent housing and create economic opportunities, principally for low-to-moderate income persons. Activities may address needs such as infrastructure, economic development projects, public facilities, community centers, housing rehabilitation, public services, clearance/acquisition, code enforcement, homeowner assistance, etc.

The Georgia Initiative for Community Housing (GICH) offers communities a three-year program of collaboration and technical assistance related to housing and community development. GICH is dedicated to helping communities improve their quality of life and economic vitality through the development of locally-driven housing and revitalization strategies. Our City of Warner Robins Housing team focuses on identifying and addressing housing needs in our community.
Keep Warner Robins Beautiful (KWRB)
Keep Warner Robins Beautiful began in 1985 as the Clean Community Commission. In the beginning, the organization’s goals were to recommend refuse and environmental management policies to ensure city activities followed a common goal and purpose. Over time, as Keep Warner Robins Beautiful (KWRB) evolved, the vision, mission, and impact grew tremendously. As an affiliate of both Keep Georgia Beautiful and Keep America Beautiful, KWRB aligns its goals with both organization visions in mind. KWRB, in conjunction with each city department, works daily to ensure that all citizens of Warner Robins get to live in the clean, green, and beautiful environment they deserve. Above all, we strive to promote education and inspire community engagement in events to promote recycling, end litter, and beautify our city.
