    Community Development Block Grant

    Created in 1974, the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs, including housing.  The City of Lakeland is an "entitlement community," receiving a formula-based annual allocation of CDBG funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

    Primary Objective

    The primary objective of the CDBG program is to develop viable urban communities by providing decent, safe housing, a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate incomes.  Consistent with this objective, not less than 70% of the City of Lakeland's CDBG funding shall be used for activities which benefit persons of low and moderate incomes.
