Community Development Block Grant (CDBG):


The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs including improvements of water systems, sewer, roads/streets, drainage, housing, etc.  Beginning in 1974, the CDBG program is one of the longest continuously run programs at HUD. The CDBG program works to ensure decent affordable housing, to provide services to the most vulnerable in our communities, and to create jobs through the expansion and retention of businesses. CDBG is an important tool for helping local governments tackle serious challenges facing their communities. No less than 70 percent of CDBG funds must be used for activities that benefit low- and moderate-income persons. In addition, each activity must meet one of the following national objectives for the program: benefit low- and moderate-income persons, prevention or elimination of slums or blight, or address community development needs having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community for which other funding is not available. The Heart of Georgia Altamaha Regional Commission can assist your community with both writing an application and administering the project once funded. CDBG applications are due at the Department of Community Affairs offices the first week of April. The Commission requests you contact our offices by December to discuss possible projects.

Employment Incentive Program (EIP):

The Employment Incentive Program is a financing program that may be used in conjunction with traditional private financing to carry out economic development projects which will result in employment of low and moderate income persons. Many types of projects can be financed with EIP funding. However, projects creating opportunities for low and moderate income persons to advance themselves by obtaining employment, greater job security, better working conditions, job training, enhancement of workplace skills and advancement opportunities receive the greatest consideration. Possible projects include:
• Public water and sewer systems, distribution and/or collection lines, wastewater treatment projects, rail spurs, and various other types of public facilities.
• Financing for fixed assets including: land, new facilities, rehabilitation of existing facilities, machinery, equipment, etc.
The EIP is administered by the State of Georgia's Department of Community Affairs and is funded by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. EIP applications are accepted year round by the Department of Community Affairs.

Immediate Threat and Danger (ITAD):

The Immediate Threat and Danger Program provides 50% matching funds for community development activities having a particular urgency when existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community. Local funds must comprise at least 10% of project costs. Funding for this program comes from the state's annual Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. Applicants can apply for $50,000 and DCA reserves $200,000 for "major disasters." Eligible applicants are units of general purpose local government, excluding metropolitan cities, urban counties, and units of government eligible to participate in the urban counties or metropolitan cities program of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. To be fundable, applications must address an event or situation having a particular urgency and uniqueness that adversely affects a community and its citizens and where other financial resources are not available to meet such needs. The event or situation must have a sense of urgency and be of recent origin or have recently become urgent. Recent origin is defined as a condition that developed or became critical within 18 months of application. Ample descriptions of the cause of the threat, and probable ramifications, must be provided. The Heart of Georgia Altamaha Regional Commission can assist your community with the application and administration of the project.
