Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) -- Downtown Revitalization

Virginia’s Community Development Block Grant program provides funding to eligible units of local government to support business district revitalization efforts to improve the economic and physical conditions within the community. Downtown revitalization requires significant local capacity and resources. Interested communities must demonstrate that business district revitalization is the highest community development need, explain why this is their highest need and provide detail on other community development efforts that have been completed.
