Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The federal CDBG program consists of two components: an entitlement program, in which larger jurisdictions receive a direct allocation of CDBG funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (U.S. HUD), and a non-entitlement program, in which small and rural jurisdiction can apply for CDBG funds allocated to states for purposes of the CDBG program.
