CommunityDevelopment Block Grant (CDBG)

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program is administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and provides federal funding to perform a variety of community development and housing activities in all states, qualifying counties, and in all “entitled” cities (those with a population of at least 50,000 people). The amount of money granted to a city is determined on an annual basis by a HUD formula. The following summary of the CDBG Program is intended to highlight major program requirements and considerations.
