The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program is a federal program that provides funding for housing and community development. In 1974, Congress passed the Housing and Community Development Act, Title I, which authorized the development of the CDBG Program. The program, administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, consists of two components, an entitlement program that provided funding directly to urban areas and a Small Cities Program which funds communities with populations under 50,000.
Lockport, NY Community Development
As set forth in the Federal Housing and Community Development Act, the primary objective of the CDBG program “is the development of viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income.” Under the act, CDBG funds are intended for the support of community development activities that are directed toward the following specific objectives:
- Benefit low- and moderate-income (LMI) persons
- Aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight; or
- Meet 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 to meet such needs.
The City of Lockport has participated in the CDBG program since its inception. Today’s programs depend on funding availability. Please contact the Community Development Office at 716-439-6688 for additional information.
