 Overview: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds may be used to provide affordable housing, services and jobs for the most vulnerable in our community. At least 70% of CDBG funds must be used for activities that benefit low- and moderate-income persons. In addition, each activity must meet one of the following objectives:
  • benefit low- and moderate-income persons
  • prevention or elimination of slums or blight
  • address community development needs having a particular urgency.
On May 26, 2009, City Council approved the use of the funds to rehabilitate 30 owner-occupied single family homes. These homes will be located in targeted revitalization neighborhoods: Druid Hills, Lakewood, Lincoln Heights, Reid Park Thomasboro/ Hoskins, Washington Heights and Wingate neighborhoods. The program will be available to households earning 60% or less than the area median income ($39,900 for a family of four). Many of the homeowners are seniors earning 30% or less than the area median income ($19,950 for a family of four).
