Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. Beginning in 1974, the CDBG program is one of the longest continuously run programs at HUD. The CDBG program provides annual grants on a formula basis to 1209 general units of local government and States.

  7. CDBG cont. • Entitlement grantees receive an annual CDBG allocation. • To receive funds, grantees complete a consolidated plan • The consolidated plan: • Identifies a community’s affordable housing and community development needs • Documents how the grantee plans to address these needs over the next 3-5 years. • Emphasizes community input in determining priorities and goals • Includes other CPD program funds: HOME, ESG, HOPWA and HTF • Each year grantees complete an annual action plan and report on their efforts to address identified needs

  8. CDBG cont. • At least 70% of CDBG dollars must be used for activities that benefit low-and moderate income persons, up to 80% of area median income. • Unlike the HOME Program, no match requirement • Eligible activities offer a wide range of tools for neighborhood revitalization

  9. CDBG – Eligible Uses • Planning • Non-profit capacity building • Property acquisition • Clearance/Demolition/Remediation • Code enforcement • Public infrastructure improvements • Public facility improvements • Public services • Economic Development • Housing rehabilitation – single & multi-family • Homeownership assistance

  10. CDBG – Disaster Recovery HUD provides flexible grants to help cities, counties, and States recover from Presidentially declared disasters, especially in low-income areas, subject to availability of supplemental appropriations. In response to Presidentially declared disasters, Congress may appropriate additional funding for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program as Disaster Recovery grants to rebuild the affected areas and provide crucial seed money to start the recovery process.

  11. CDBG – DR Eligible Grantees Eligible Grantees • CDBG-DR funds are made available to states, units of general local governments, Indian tribes, and insular areas designated by the President of the United States as disaster areas. These communities must have significant unmet recovery needs and the capacity to carry out a disaster recovery program (usually these are governments that already receive HOME or CDBG allocations).

  12. CDBG – DR Eligible Activities Eligible Activities Grantees may use CDBG-DR funds for recovery efforts involving housing, economic development, infrastructure and prevention of further damage to affected areas. Use of CDBG-DR funding cannot duplicate funding available from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Small Business Administration, and the US Army Corps of Engineers. Examples of these activities include: • Buying damaged properties in a flood plain and relocating residents to safer areas; • Relocation payments for people and businesses displaced by the disaster; • Debris removal not covered by FEMA; • Rehabilitation of homes and buildings damaged by the disaster; • Buying, constructing, or rehabilitating public facilities such as streets, neighborhood centers, and water, sewer and drainage systems;

  13. CDBG – DR Eligible Activities cont.
