Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

About CDBG

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is authorized under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. The Entitlement Program is the portion of the CDBG program that provides categorical block grant funds to metropolitan cities and urban counties. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awards CDBG grants to entitlement communities to carry out affordable housing and community development activities directed toward revitalizing neighborhoods, economic development, and providing improved community facilities and services. 

The City of Lewiston, Idaho receives CDBG Entitlement funds annually and, as the responsible entity, applies for, administers, monitors and reports according to federal regulations.
