Community Development Programs

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a federal formula-allocated grant program under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The program was created when Congress passed the Housing and Community Development Act, Title 1 in 1974 and is governed by rules set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations (24 CFR Part 570).

The Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA) - Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources (DEHCR) administers the State Community Development Block Grant Program and provides funding to units of general local government (UGLGs) that do not receive an annual allocation directly from HUD. 

The primary purpose of the CDBG program is the development of viable communities through the provision of decent affordable housing, a suitable living environment, and the expansion of economic opportunities, principally for the benefit of persons of low and moderate income.
