Community Development Block Grant Program

The Town of Manchester Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), provides an annual grant which supports a variety of projects and activities to benefit Manchester residents. Communities participating in the CDBG program have a great deal of discretion regarding the use of grant funds as long as proposed projects and activities:

  • meet one or more national objectives;
  • are eligible according to HUD guidelines; and
  • at least 70% of the grant funds expended benefit low and moderate income residents.
