The Community Development Block Grant Program is a federally funded block grant focused on benefiting low- to moderate-income people by providing resources for livable neighborhoods, economic empowerment, and decent housing.
Entitlements – primarily urban cities (populations 50,000 +) and urban counties (populations over 200,000)
- The Cities of Albany, Atlanta, Brunswick, Dalton, Gainesville, Hinesville, Marietta, Rome, Roswell, Sandy Springs City, Savannah, Smyrna City, Valdosta, and Warner Robbins.
- The Consolidated Governments of Athens/Clarke County, Augusta/Richmond County, Columbus Consolidated Government, and Macon/Bibb County.
Non-entitlements - Cities/Counties that do not participate in the Entitlement Program: At DCA, we administer the State’s Non-Entitlement CDBG program. As the administrator of these funds, eligible applicants include Units of General-Purpose Local Government (cities or counties) that do not participate in HUD's CDBG Entitlement or Urban County program.
