The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a federal program that provides municipalities with block grants that are used to provide communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community needs.

These programs and initiatives are often implemented through community organizations and delegate agencies. The following are some of the City’s CDBG funded programs by department:
