Community Development Block Grant Program
The primary objective of the CDBG Program is the development of viable urban communities, by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low- and moderate-income.
Each year, the federal government distributes community development block grant funds to cities for their local community development projects. The City of Oakland distributes these funds through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.
How the CDBG Program Helps Oakland
Oakland's CDBG program focuses mainly on physical development activities: community-wide housing, public facilities and improvements, neighborhood revitalization and economic development.
A restricted portion of the grant funds can be spent on public services activities, identified by the Consolidated Plan. See the Citizen Participation Plan to find out how you can get involved.
For more information, contact the CDBG Unit at (510) 238-3716 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
