The Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) administers the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program in all of Iowa’s incorporated cities and counties, except those designated as HUD entitlement areas. Authorized under the Housing and Community Development Act, the main goal of the program is to “develop viable communities by providing decent housing and suitable living environments and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate incomes.”

In Iowa, the CDBG program can be used to fund eligible activities, including public facilities such as water and sewer facilities and community buildings; housing rehabilitation; and economic development and job training.  All projects must meet the National Objectives as defined by HUD.
