Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The CDBG Program is authorized under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1975, as amended. The primary objective is the development of viable urban communities, achieved by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities, principally for Low - and Moderate - Income (LMI) persons.

In 2004, the City of Harrisonburg became a CDBG Entitlement Community; the City will receive annual CDBG funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This designation is a result of Harrisonburg's growing population and its designation as a metropolitan area.

It is the City's intention to solicit applications for CDBG funding each year from local government agencies, non-profits, and for-profit businesses for projects meeting HUD/CDBG objectives and filling gaps in local services and meeting local priority needs, as outlined in the Consolidated Plan.


Copies of the Consolidated Plan are available by contacting the City Manager's Office and they are also available at the Massanutten Regional Library.
