The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program was enacted in 1974 by President Gerald Ford through the Housing and Community Development Act and took effect in January 1975. Most directly, the law was a response to the Nixon administration’s 1973 funding moratorium on many Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs.

Green Hills Regional Planning Commission provides grant writing and administration services for community development projects such as senior centers, early education centers, county and municipal facilities, infrastructure projects, and more. Our staff has extensive experience with CDBG programs, as well as USDA-Rural Development, NAP Tax credits, DNR, EDA, and others.



Stay tuned! We will soon have an updated list of our current projects.
