The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program provides cities with funds for eligible activities in the areas of housing, economic development, public facilities, social services and planning. All funded activities must meet one of the following national objectives:
Assist low and moderate-income households
Eliminate or prevent slums or blight
Respond to an urgent need. Designated use of the funds is based on a collaborative process that comes under the guidance of the Housing and Community Development Citizen Advisory Committee (HCDA).
The Committee is comprised of Alhambra residents who are given an opportunity to make recommendations concerning proposed use of the funds, range of activities, and actual use of funds designated to benefit low and very low persons.
