​Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)​​​​​​​​​​​
​The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) works to ensure decent affordable housing for all, provide services to the most vulnerable members of our community, create jobs and expand business opportunities, and provide a wide array of housing and social services. 
Examples include low-income home repair, public facility construction and rehabilitation, demolition of unsafe structures, summer youth programs, employment training and senior services. 
The program is an important tool in helping tackle the city's most serious community challenges. In order to be eligible under the CDBG program, all activities must meet one of the following national objectives for the program:
  • Benefit low and moderate-income persons (Used for almost all projects);
  • Prevent or eliminate slums or blight; or
  • ​Community development needs having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community.
