Community Development Block Grant

CDBG Program

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program was established by Congress as part of the Housing and Community Development Act (HCDA) of 1974.

The West Virginia Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) provides grants to local governments (towns, cities, and counties) that do not receive CDBG direct funding from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The primary objective of CDBG funding is to develop sustainable communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities principally for persons of low to moderate income.

CDBG- CV Program

In response to the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19), the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) granted the State of West Virginia $20,250,608 in funding for a supplemental program to CDBG, known as CDBG-CV. These funds were authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). The fundamental goals of CDBG-CV are to help local governments in the prevention of, preparation for, and response to the COVID-19 in communities throughout the State. CDBG-CV funds are available for qualifying public facility projects, public services, and planning activities that serve primarily low to moderate income residents State-wide.
