Financing improvements to rental properties has borne a new challenge for local rehabilitation programs. In most lower-income communities. there is a mixture of owneroccupied and rental housing, and public resources must be directed to each ownership type to have an impact in "turning around" marginal neighborhoods.
A key and growing source of public funds for rental rehabilitation finance has been the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)program. Since the mid-Seventies, HUD has been actively encouraging local governments to increase their use of CDBG funds for the rehabilitation of rental properties.
