Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) seeks to develop viable communities by promoting integrated approaches that provide decent housing, a suitable living environment and expand economic opportunities for low and moderate income persons. CDBG is one of the programs used to achieve this goal. To that end, it creates partnerships with other levels of government and the private sector, including for-profit and nonprofit organizations.
