What is the Community Development Block Grant Program?

  • The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program provides funding on an annual basis for local projects that address a variety of housing, public service, and community development needs.
  • Eligible applicants for CDBG funds include local nonprofit organizations and local government entities in Loudoun County or those mainly serving Loudoun County residents. 
  • Organizations within the community can compete for these funds through an annual application process.
  • Proposed projects should address the goals of the CDBG program, which include providing affordable housing opportunities, revitalizing neighborhoods, renovating substandard housing, providing public services and expanding economic development opportunities, primarily for persons of low and moderate income. 
  • The funds must be used based on guidelines outlined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
