At least 80 percent of CDBG funds must be used for activities that benefit low- and moderate-income persons. CDBG goals include:

  • Improving the urban environment in low- and moderate-income areas;
  • Eliminating blighting influences and the deterioration of property, neighborhoods and public facilities in low- and moderate-income areas; and
  • Ensuring decent, safe, sanitary housing for low- and moderate-income residents.

Eligible activities include, but are not limited to the following: public facility construction and improvements; handicap accessibility; operational funding for non-profit agencies servicing primarily low income persons; rehabilitation of owner-occupied housing; housing development assistance, enforcement of City codes; clearance and demolition; infrastructure improvements; and, business development and job creation activities.
