Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The Department of Local Affairs administers the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program for non-entitlement municipalities and counties to carry out community development activities.

The funds must be used for activities that either benefit low- and moderate-income persons; prevent or eliminate slums or blight, or address community development needs that have a particular urgency.   



The Division of Local Government (DLG) oversees Public Facilities.  Eligible uses of funds include acquisition, design/engineering, construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation or installation of public improvements or public facilities.  Examples of projects include sewer and water systems, community centers, food banks, shelters, health clinics etc.



Please consult with your Regional Manager prior to submitting an application.  

The application deadline for 2018 CDBG funding consideration is Monday, February 12, 2018.
