The primary objective of the CDBG Program, as set forth by Congress is "the development of viable urban communities, by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income."
Federal regulations define persons who are low and moderate-income as households earning under 80% of the area median income, as determined by HUD, adjusted by household size.
