Community Development Block Grant Program

Under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, Federal funds are provided annually to certain units of general local government to assist in their community development activities. The Community Development Block Grant program, authorized by the Act, supersedes and consolidates a number of previous categorical programs into a single program under which Federal aid will be provided on an annual basis, with maximum certainty and minimum delay, thus providing an improved basis for community planning. The first year for which funds were appropriated for this new program was fiscal year 1975.
