CDBG makes funds available in four categories:  Community Development (CD), Economic Development (ED), Community Services and Housing Activities, and Disaster Recovery Initiative (DRI).  CDBG grants can be used broadly but are primarily used to provide a suitable living environment by expanding economic opportunities and providing decent housing to low-income households.  Funds are available in California communities that do not receive CDBG funding directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 

CDBG Partners with rural cities and counties to improve the lives of their low- and moderate-income residents through the creation and expansion of community and economic development opportunities in support of livable communities.
