What is it?

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is federal funding provided to the City of Columbus by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to develop viable urban communities with an emphasis on supporting low- and moderate-income persons. CDBG can be used for projects like affordable housing development, public facilities and services, property rehabilitation, and more.
