Grants to California nonprofit organizations, government entities, and city departments for a broad range of public services that promote viable urban communities. Applicants must attend a workshop in order to apply for funding. Primary emphasis is placed on projects that benefit low-and moderate-income households and individuals.

The purpose of the CDBG program is to enhance and maintain viable urban communities through the provision of decent affordable housing, a suitable living environment, and the expansion of economic opportunities for low – moderate income (LMI) persons and households. To be eligible for CDBG funding, each activity must meet one of HUD’s three National Objectives. The National objectives are:

1. Benefit low - moderate income persons

Typical activities of LMA are construction, graffiti abatement, community facilities, construction of a health clinic, development of a community center, and street, water and sewer line improvements.

This category covers activities that aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight in a designated area. Examples include:

  • Rehabilitation of substandard housing located in a designated blight
    area when the housing is brought to standard condition;
  • Infrastructure improvements in a deteriorated area; and
  • Economic development assistance in the form of a low-interest loan to a
    business as an inducement to locate a branch store in a redeveloping
    blighted area.

3. Meeting other community development needs having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community and other financial resources are not available.

Activities must be designed to alleviate existing conditions that pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community, which became urgent within the past 18 months, grantee is unable to finance the activity on its own, and other sources of funding are not available.
