The goal of the Community Development Department is to improve the City of Anniston’s community by providing adequate housing, a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities for citizens who are low- to moderate-income.
The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is the principal federal program providing grants to states, cities, and towns to devise neighborhood approaches that will improve the physical, economic, and social conditions in communities. CDBG is administered nationally by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program was created by the National Affordable Housing Act (NAHA) of 1990. It is the largest Federal block grant available to communities to create affordable housing for low to moderate-income families. Each year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) determines the amount of HOME funds that states and local governments are eligible to receive using a formula designed to reflect relative housing needs.
The primary objective of the HOME Program is to expand affordable housing options for persons of low and moderate-income by:
- Providing decent affordable housing to low-income residents
