Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvements

Community development is a broad term that can cover many ideas and activities. When working to improve and strengthen communities and neighborhoods, it is essential to examine all of the issues and needs, to think big, not narrowly.


Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG)

CDBG provides funding to eligible units of local government for planning and implementing projects that address critical community development needs, including housing, infrastructure and economic development. The goal of the CDBG Program is to improve the economic and physical environment in Virginia’s communities through activities which primarily benefit low- and moderate-income persons, prevent or eliminate slums and blighting conditions or meet urgent needs which threaten the welfare of citizens.
