CDBG: Community Development Block Grant

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program provides annual grants on a formula basis to states, cities, and counties to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons. The program is authorized under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383, as amended 42 U.S.C. 5301 et seq. The program was designed to reinforce several important values and principles of community development:

  • Flexibility empowers people and communities to design and implement strategies tailored to their own needs and priorities.
  • Emphasis on consolidated planning expands and strengthens partnerships among all levels of government and the private sector in enhancing community development.
  • Technical assistance activities and set-aside for grantees builds the capacity of these partners.
