Community Development Block Grants are a program of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development that provides funding for a wide range of community development activities directed toward neighborhood revitalization, economic development, and improved community facilities and services. Any project obtaining CDBG funding is required to meet at least one of three national objectives: Aid in the Prevention or Elimination of Slums or Blight; Benefit Low- and Moderate-Income Persons; or Meet Urgent Community Development Needs. The City of Fayetteville’s Division of Community Resources is responsible for receiving and allocating CDBG funds for Fayetteville.
