The Difference You Will Make:

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program was created by Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974.

This general objective is achieved by concentrating on activities which benefit low- and moderate-income families. The program can also aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight, and under unique circumstances, the State may also use its funds to meet urgent community development needs. A need is considered urgent if it poses a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community and has arisen in the past 18 months.
