Community Development Block Grants (CDBG)- Public and Community Facilities Grants

Montana’s CDBG Public and Community Facilities projects typically involve either construction or rehabilitation of community infrastructure or a community facility that principally benefit residents whose annual income is below 80% of the area median income published by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). CDBG financial assistance can be used for a variety of project-related activities, including but not limited to acquisition, construction, architectural/engineering services, documenting compliance with CDBG requirements, legal work, and grant administration.
