Community Development Activities

Community Development activities include many different programs that provide assistance to a wide variety of grantees. One program, the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program provides annual grants on a formula basis to entitled cities, urban counties and states to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons. CDBG Disaster Recovery Assistance provides flexible grants to help cities, counties, and States recover from Presidentially declared disasters, especially in low-income areas. The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) was established by Congress in 1965 to support economic and social development in the Appalachian Region.

The Laws and Regulations section contains information on both the Laws as passed by Congress and the Regulations as adopted by HUD to carry out the law.

The Allocations/ Appropriations section maintains information concerning the funds available and how those funds are allocated.

Go to the Library to find information about materials that help grantees and interested parties. Webcasts, documents, and other miscellaneous information can all be found here.
