Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
About the CDBG Program
The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program provides funding for activities in 4 areas: housing; community facilities and public infrastructure; economic development; and public services. St. Louis County receives CDBG funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and distributes the funding to local communities and non-profit agencies through an annual competitive process. The process is managed by the Planning and Community Development Department. A CDBG Citizens’ Advisory Committee reviews the applications and formulates a funding recommendation to the St. Louis County Board of Commissioners.
