Community Development Block Grant Program

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program was created by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974.  The program has funded a wide variety of housing and community development activities throughout the United States. These include land acquisition for new affordable housing projects, rehabilitation of existing housing, construction or renovation of community centers, infrastructure improvements, fair housing services and other public services.

Emergency Solutions Grant Program

The Emergency Solutions Grants Program was created in 1987 by the Stuart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act. In addition to the emergency shelter program, the McKinney Act created a variety of other funding programs designed to assist the homeless. With the exception of the Emergency Solutions Grants Program, the other McKinney programs require a direct application to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and other federal agencies.

HOME Investment Partnerships Program

The Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act created the Home Investment Partnership (HOME) Program in 1990. This federal program provides annual grants to cities, counties and states throughout the United States to support affordable housing activities that benefit very low and low-income households.
