Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The United States Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) allocates funds used by the Kansas Department of Commerce for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Housing Rehabilitation program.

The CDBG housing program is specifically designed to provide housing rehabilitation for low- to moderate-income individuals.
