Cherokee County’s Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) mission is to invest in people and services to develop a viable community so that all families and individuals may have basic needs met, may enjoy safe, decent, and affordable housing, may live in a suitable environment, and may be afforded the chance to expand economic opportunities.
Community Development Block Grant Value Proposition Statement
Maximize Community Development Block Grant funds to fund affordable housing programs, anti-poverty programs, human services, and infrastructure development in Cherokee County by ensuring that all required steps are taken to comply with federal eligibility and other program requirements.
The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. Enacted in 1974, the CDBG program is one of the longest, continuously-run programs at HUD. HUD provides annual grants, on a formula basis, to over 1,200 general units of local government and states.
The CDBG program is an important tool for helping local governments tackle serious challenges facing communities. CDBG works to ensure decent, affordable housing, to provide services to the most vulnerable in our communities, and to create jobs through the expansion and retention of businesses. The program has made a difference in the lives of millions of people and communities across the nation.
