CDBG - Community Development Block Grant
In 1974, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) established the CDBG program to develop viable urban communities, by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment and expand economic opportunities, primarily for persons of low to moderate income.
