CDBG provides funds to support the development of viable urban communities through quality housing and expanding economic opportunities for persons of low and moderate income.
HESG provides funds for emergency shelters for the homeless and other programs to prevent homelessness.
HOME provides funds to expand the supply of safe, affordable housing for low-income Americans, such as First Time Homebuyer Assistance and Housing Rehab Programs.
These funds are awarded through the Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program from the Housing and Urban Development Administration (HUD).
