Michigan Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a federal grant program utilizing funds received from the U.S. Department of housing and Urban Development (HUD). This program provides grants to eligible counties, cities, villages, and townships, usually with populations under 50,000, for economic development, community development, and housing projects. Funded projects must benefit persons with low-moderate incomes, either for those residing in the project area or through job creation.

of the program.
