The Community Development Block Grant Program is a federal grant for housing and community development projects that benefit low and moderate-income persons. For a number of years the City of Rockville has received Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding through an agreement with Montgomery County. Rockville currently receives about $230,000 in CDBG funding annually. More background on CDBG is available here.

Each year, the City conducts a CDBG public hearing and application process to determine how to allocate CDBG funds.  Recently, CDBG funds have been used to rehabilitate different types of housing and provide social services to low and moderate-income community residents.
