The City of Albany became a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) entitlement community in 2013, and receives an annual formula grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The purpose of the CDBG program funds is to create viable urban communities through decent housing and suitable living environments, by removing blighted conditions, and expanding economic opportunities. CDBG funds can be used to implement a wide variety of community and economic development eligible activities, to principally benefit low- and moderate-income persons.

The CDBG program provides the City with an essential funding source to financially support a variety of programs and projects including those described below. Activities funded through the CDBG program must address the priority needs, goals, objectives and strategies identified through the City’s Five-Year Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plans.
