The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program provides federal funding for projects to improve the quality of life for people with low or moderate incomes, revitalize urban centers, and address the urgent health and safety needs of low-income communities. The CDBG program has been continuously administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) since 1974, making it one of HUD’s longest-running community improvement and housing affordability programs.
