The CDBG: Improving Lives and Strengthening Communities Report by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Coalition serves to inform stakeholders on the importance of CDBG to community advancement and success.
CDBG has been critically underfunded and program grantees have had to contend with less funding to address surmounting needs. Program grantees are faced with a lack of CDBG funds to help them undertake concentrated improvements and development in low-income neighborhoods.
Funding is directed to all states, territories, and congressional districts annually. It remains one of the most important resources for state and local governments and their partners to use in devising flexible solutions to meet community development needs.
