Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The Community Development Block Grant Program is a Housing Rehabilitation program for Low-Income residents of Yuba County. The Federal Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 created the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program that is today administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The program provides low-interest loans and grants to homeowners living in single-family homes. The loans are designed to fit the needs of the homeowners, with repayment depending upon income, and the ability to pay. The loans may be established on the basis of principle and interest or interest only.

Rehabilitation can include the following types of issues.

  • Roofing
    • Electrical
      • Plumbing
        • Flooring
          • Windows and Doors

Special attention is given to items that are Health and Safety issues, Handicap Accessibility Issues and Building Code Issues.
