General Goals:
The primary objective of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is the development of viable urban communities by (1) providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and (2) expanding economic opportunities. The goals and funding are principally to benefit low-moderate income persons.

Entitlement funds are provided on an annual basis to the city by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Under both statute (Public Law 93-383, as amended) and regulation (24 CFR 570), the CDBG program gives maximum feasible priority to activities which will carry out one of three broad national objectives: (1) benefit low-moderate income persons, (2) aid in the prevention or elimination of slums and blight, or (3) meet other community development needs having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health and welfare of the community where other financial resources are not available to meet such needs.
