Grants to Indiana nonprofit organizations to meet community needs and improve the quality of life for residents in eligible regions. Eligible programs will benefit underserved populations and low and moderate-income residents. Funding priorities include non-housing community development, homelessness, and non-homeless special needs. Programs must benefit residents of LaPorte.

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) aims to promote viable urban communities by providing decent housing, suitable living environments and expanded economic opportunities through three (3) national objectives: benefitting low and moderate-income persons, prevention/elimination of slums or blight, and meeting an urgent need. Use of the urgent need is very rare. It is designed only for activities that alleviate emergency conditions. The Community Development Block Grant further stipulates that at least 51% of the persons received services funded through this grant must be low and moderate-income individuals. 

Eligible programs must be able to demonstrate primary benefit to low and moderate income LaPorte residents, homeless individuals/families, the elderly, handicapped or other populations with physical, financial, and/or emotional limitations.
