CDBG Background

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. Beginning in 1974, the CDBG program is one of the longest continuously run programs at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The CDBG program provides annual grants on a formula basis to 1209 general units of local government and States.

City of Roswell CDBG Program

The City of Roswell currently qualifies as a CDBG entitlement community. Entitlement communities develop their own programs and funding priorities and give maximum feasible priority to activities which benefit low and moderate income persons. HUD awards annual grants to entitlement community grantees to carry out a wide range of community development activities directed toward revitalizing neighborhoods, economic development, and providing improved community facilities and services.

HUD determines the amount of each entitlement grant by a statutory dual formula which uses several objective measures of community needs, including the extent of poverty, population, housing overcrowding, age of housing and population growth lag in relationship to other metropolitan areas. To maintain these awards, HUD requires its CDBG entitlement grantees to submit a Five Year Consolidated Plan (also known as a Con Plan), an Annual Action Plan (AAP), a Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER), an Analysis to Impediments to Fair Housing Choice Plan (AI), and a Citizen Participation Plan (CPP). The most current versions of these documents can be found below.
