The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides federal funding and resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs.
The CDBG program works to provide decent affordable housing, to provide services to the most vulnerable in our communities, and to create jobs through the expansion and retention of businesses. CDBG is an important tool for helping local governments like Cary tackle serious challenges facing their communities. For individual entitlement communities, HUD determines the amount of each grant by using a formula comprised of several measures of community need, including the extent of poverty, population, housing overcrowding, age of housing, and population growth lag in relationship to other metropolitan areas.
