CDBG Reports, Program Data, and Income Limits

This page provides reports, program data, and income limits related to the following Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Programs: Entitlement Program, State Program, Colonias Set-Aside Program, HUD Administered Non-Entitled Counties in Hawaii Program, and Insular Areas Program.


Accomplishment Reports
These profiles display accomplishments for selected housing, economic development, public improvement, and public service activities. These profiles contain accomplishments reported, by program year and grantee, and are part of HUD's continued effort to provide grantees and citizens with information on our programs. They provide information on grantee accomplishments by the type of activity carried out. The accomplishments appearing in these profiles were reported by grantees in the Integrated Disbursement and Information System (IDIS). Profiles for grantees will vary, grantees have flexibility in determining the housing, economic and community development activities they carry out with CDBG funds.

Expenditure Reports
These profiles show how grantees expended CDBG funds during its most recently completed program year. These profiles provide information on grantee expenditures by the type of activity carried out. Since CDBG funds may be used for a wide variety of housing, community and economic development activities, the use of those funds may be identified in these profiles by as many as 90 different categories (matrix codes) depending on how an entitlement community has chosen to use its funds to meet local needs. With these profiles, you can quickly and easily become more informed on how CDBG funds are being spent by any one of the entitlement grantees to which funds are awarded or at the national level.

Performance Profiles
These profiles assist grantees in measuring their contributions toward meeting the housing and community developments needs of low- and moderate-income persons in their communities and in analyzing the effectiveness and efficiency of their program. They also help to ensure accountability and assist in assessing the progress of each grantee's program.

Consolidated Plan
The 3- to 5-year Consolidated Plan describes a jurisdiction’s community development priorities and multiyear goals for using CDBG, Emergency Shelter Grants, Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), HOME, and HOPWA. Priorities and goals are based on an assessment of housing and community development needs, an analysis of housing and economic market conditions and available resources.

Annual Action Plan
The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans. Action Plans prepared by entitlement grantees provide a concise summary of the actions, activities, and the specific federal and non-federal resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified by the Consolidated Plan. Action Plans prepared by state grantees must contain a Method of Distribution (MOD) which describes how the state will distribute funds.

State and local governments that receive CDBG, Emergency Shelter Grants, Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), HOME, and HOPWA funds report all activity occurring through the last day of the program year in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). Grantees are required to submit their CAPER to HUD within 90 days after the end of their annual program year. The Performance and Evaluation Report (PER) serves as the CDBG portion of the state’s CAPER. Note that, while the PER reports on activities and accomplishments taking place during the program year, the report is structured to show how funding from each annual grant was spent during that period.

The 2008-2012 American Community Survey provides the information needed to fulfill this requirement. Estimates have been prepared at the Census Bureau's Geographic Summary Level 080: State-County-County Subdivision-Place/Remainder-Census Tract. Guidance on how to use these data to report accomplishments in IDIS is available on the Reporting Race/Ethnicity Data for Activities Providing Access for Persons with Disabilities web page.
