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 93-383, as amended; 42 U.S.C.-5301 et seq.  The City of Port Orange became a CDBG entitlement community in 2006.

CDBG activities selected by a community for implementation must further the national objectives of improving the quality of life for low and moderate income persons; aid in the prevention or elimination of slum and blight; and meet a need having a particular urgency.  Based upon a five (5) year Consolidated Plan adopted locally, communities may use CDBG funds that are allocated to them for the following:  Acquisition of land and/or buildings; disposition of land or buildings; installation or construction of a public facility; clearance and demolition; housing services; homeownership assistance; rehabilitation of properties; code enforcement; historic preservation; lead-based paint testing, evaluation, reduction and clearance; public services; economic development and planning and administration.
