Grants to North Carolina organizations for community development programs and projects in eligible communities. The primary purpose of the program is to increase housing, improve living environments, and enhance economic opportunities for individuals and households with low-to-moderate incomes. Activities must benefit residents in Chapel Hill.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) annually awards Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding to state and local governments, to support community planning and development activities and promote integrated approaches to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expand economic opportunities for low and moderate-income persons. 

CDBG eligible activities include, but are not limited to: Acquisition of Real Property, Relocation and Demolition, Rehabilitation, Public Facilities and Improvements, and Public Services. 

Generally, all CDBG activities must benefit persons with a household income below 80% of the Area Median Income adjusted for family size.
