What is CDBG?
The Community Development Block Grant program is administered nationally by the U. S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Federal monies are awarded annually to cities and counties based upon a formula for activities designed to improve the quality of life within communities by providing decent, safe and sanitary housing, a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities. Primary beneficiaries of CDBG funds must be low - and moderate-income households. These are defined as a family whose annual income does not exceed 80% of the median income for the area. The CDBG program is authorized under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93 to 383, as amended; 42 U.S.C.-5301 et seq. The City of Port Orange became a CDBG entitlement community in 2006.
