The CDBG Program funds local community development activities such as affordable housing, infrastructure development, and planning activities. Created in 1975 during the Ford administration, it is one of the longest-running and most successful HUD programs. CDBG grants are established to meet specific community needs and purposes. They are deliberately designed to be used at the discretion of state and local governments and their sub-grantees.
Lewis & Clark Regional Development Council manages the program for a ten-county region consisting of Burleigh, Emmons, Grant, Kidder, McLean, Mercer, Morton, Oliver, Sheridan, and Sioux Counties.
