Public Housing Authorities

The eligible activities of the CDBG include:

Federal regulations restrict the amount of CDBG funds that may be used for human services. Consequently, the majority of CDBG funds are used for capital projects, housing repair, and economic development.

Capital projects involve the acquisition and/or improvement of real property. CDBG funds may be used for acquisition of land and buildings as well as for design, engineering, permits and construction costs.

Funds may also be used for related project costs such as property appraisal, property surveys, closing costs, legal fees, demolition, hazardous materials abatement, landscaping, project management and relocation assistance for households or businesses displaced temporarily or permanently by a CDBG-assisted project.

Two public hearings are scheduled to receive public comments about housing and community development needs prior to Annual Action Plan submission.  The public hearing also provides feedback on how funds have been expended in the past year. Both are in the County Administration Building at 451 W. Third Street, 10th Floor, Dayton, OH 45422.
