The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program was passed by Congress as Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 to help cities address their community development needs. In 1981, Congress amended the legislation to allow states to administer CDBG funds to serve communities outside the large cities and urban counties. The law requires that seventy percent of all CDBG funds be spent on activities that benefit low- or moderate-income people. The Division of Housing uses a portion of the state's CDBG funding to provide or improve permanent residential structures that will house low and moderate income households outside of the larger cities and counties, which are known as "entitlement areas."
