Using these funds, municipalities may undertake a wide range of activities directed toward neighborhood revitalization, economic development, and providing improved community facilities and services. Such activities are developed at the local level, as are the funding priorities, provided that such activities conform to the statutory standards and regulations.
Entitlement communities develop their own programs and funding priorities. However, grantees must give maximum feasible priority to activities that benefit low- and moderate-income people. A grantee also must carry out activities that aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight or meet other community development needs having a particular urgency. CDBG funds may not be used for activities that do not meet these broad national objectives.
