Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
The purpose of the North Carolina Community Development Block Grant program is to develop viable communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for person of low and moderate income. Assistance from this grant helps local governments meet needs that are not currently being addressed in their communities. Grant categories include:
- Community Revitalization
- Housing Development
- Scattered Site Housing
- Demonstration Projects
- Urgent Needs and
- Economic Development
The North Carolina Division of Community Assistance (DCA) has conditionally awarded Henderson County and its interested municipalities $400,000 in CDBG funds as part of the 2008 Scattered Site Housing Program (SSH).
These funds will be used for the rehabilitation of very low-income, owner-occupied, single-family homes.
