Community Development Block Grant

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a federally funded grant program. CDBG funds are awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to qualifying communities to carry out a wide range of community development activities directed toward neighborhood revitalization, economic development, and providing improved community facilities and services.

In order to qualify, CDBG-funded projects must satisfy one of the three national program objectives:

  • Provide a benefit to low and moderate income persons,
  • Prevent or eliminate slums and blight, or
  • Meet other urgent community development needs due to natural disasters or other emergencies.

Typical uses of CDBG funds in the City include rehabilitation of single-family homes, park improvements, construction of public facilities and improvements (such as water and sewer facilities and streets), ADA improvements and support for community based organizations.
