The primary objective of the CDBG program is the development of viable rural communities, for persons of low and moderate-income through the following activity types: economic development, housing, public facilities, public improvements and public services.
CDBG eligible activities are funded under the Community Development, Economic Development, and Special Allocations for Colonias and Native American communities that are non-federally recognized tribes.
To be eligible for funding, every CDBG funded activity must meet one of the following three National Objectives of the program, required by federal regulations (24 CFR Section 570.483).
The National Objectives are:
1. Benefit to low and moderate income persons;
