Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program policy states that "reconstruction generally means the rebuilding of a structure on the same site in substantially the same manner." Reconstruction is a form of rehabilitation. The number of dwelling units on a site may not be increased; but, the number of rooms per unit may be increased or decreased.
