CDBG Program Overview

The federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a principal revenue source for local communities to address the roots and consequences of poverty.  The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development administers the program on a national basis and awards grants annually to entitlement communities, including Burlington, on a formula basis.  The City in turn awards grants to local organizations as well as operates several CDBG-funded programs.
