Community Development Block Grant

Federal funding through Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for public facilities: road resurfacing, crosswalks, street lights, traffic/pedestrian signals, barrier removal for handicap accessibility (e.g., sidewalks, curb ramps), and street furniture. The annual CDBG appropriation is allocated between states and local jurisdictions called “non-entitlement” and “entitlement” communities respectively. Entitlement communities are comprised of central cities of Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs); metropolitan cities with populations of at least 50,000; and qualified urban counties with a population of 200,000 or more (excluding the populations of entitlement cities). States distribute CDBG funds to non-entitlement localities not qualified as entitlement communities. Check HUD’s, County’s, or City’s website to see if funding is eligible in your location.
