Community Development Block Grant
Responsibilities and Services

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program is authorized under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. 

The primary objective of the Act is the development of viable urban communities. These viable communities are achieved by providing the following, principally for persons of low and moderate income:
  • Decent housing
  • A suitable living environment
  • Expanded economic opportunities

To achieve these goals, the CDBG regulations outline eligible activities and the national objective that each activity must meet.
