Date Published: January 2014


This Guide is intended for public officials and citizens seeking to understand what activities are eligible to be assisted under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Entitlement Program and to guide them in making wise choices among certain alternatives available within the program for carrying out particular activities. While the statute, as amplified by the regulations, provides the authoritative version of program requirements, this Guide: Organizes eligibility requirements in a more accessible and understandable format; provides additional explanatory materials, including examples; provides guidance on the factors to be considered in selecting among alternative categories of eligibility and national objectives, where applicable; and provides guidance on accessing additional CDBG resources that may be available to a community.
