The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is designed to fund activities that primarily benefit low and moderate-income residents of Takoma Park. Eligible activities include, but are not limited to programming or projects that address local housing, employment, crime prevention, childcare, health care, drug abuse prevention, education, mental health, welfare, neighborhood revitalization, or recreation needs.

Approximately $13,500 is available for programming which primarily benefits individuals or households of low and moderate incomes. An estimated $77,500 is available for capital projects benefiting low and moderate-income neighborhoods. The project could be something that an organization does on its own or in partnership with the City of Takoma Park. Funds would be available in mid to late 2015.
