Community Development Block Grant

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program is a federally funded program aimed to assist low to moderate-income (LMI) communities with development projects that promote community revitalization throughout Greene County. 

About CDBG

Entitlement Funding

In Pennsylvania, CDBG funds may be utilized to address construction or renovation of various infrastructure projects such as water, wastewater and solid waste facilities, streets, and flood control projects; construction or improvements of a range of community facilities such as senior, health and social services centers; expansion of public services to serve low-income persons; creation of new jobs through small business loans or infrastructure improvements; and various affordable housing projects including home reconstruction, rehabilitation or repair programs.


Competitive Funding

The Competitive program is available to all Greene municipalities that are determined to be eligible. The Greene County Commissioners prioritize Sewage and Water Infrastructure improvements. The Competitive Program is $750,000 maximum for project cost.
