NACCED's celebration of National Community Development Month continues with a look at some wonderful CDBG success stories from NACCED members. Check out NACCED's latest blog to see CDBG highlights and how communities use the program as a tool for local government solutions.
The Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) was created in 1974 to provide communities with the resources to address a wide range of local community development needs. The program funds workforce development, homelessness prevention programs, public works and facilities improvements, and services for the elderly, at-risk youth, and low- and moderate-income families across the country. NACCED members have been utilizing this important tool since its inception to solve a number of local housing, infrastructure, public facilities, and service needs. March is NACCED’s Community Development Month, so to celebrate, below are several NACCED member projects that utilized CDBG funds for a variety of essential local projects.
