The primary purpose of the CDBG program is to develop viable communities by providing decent housing and suitable living environment and by increasing economic opportunities, principally for persons of low/moderate income.
Communities receiving CDBG funds from the State may use the funds for:
acquisition of property for public purposes
construction or reconstruction of streets, water and sewer facilities, neighborhood centers, recreation facilities, and other public works
rehabilitation of public and private buildings
assistance to nonprofit entities for community development activities
assistance to private, for profit entities to carry out economic development activities
