In order to be eligible for funding, the project must: 1) meet one of the CDBG National Objectives listed below, and 2) have a documented, demonstrated need for physical upgrade, development or expansion.
- National Objectives:

- To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums and blight relative to buildings, and only to the extent necessary to eliminate severe and specific conditions detrimental to public health and safety, i.e. elimination of faulty wiring, roofing, falling plaster or other similar conditions which are detrimental to all potential occupants.
- Demonstrated Need:
- The project application must identify and describe the substandard condition(s) of the subject facility. If the project is for expansion, then the application must describe the need for expansion and/or improvement to the existing or proposed facility to increase service levels, i.e. what programs will benefit from the project?
