The Community Development Block Grant Program is authorized under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. The CDBG program consolidated eight categorical programs under which communities competed for federal funds.
Local governments participate in either the Entitlement Program (for cities over 50,000 in population or urban counties with more than 200,000 people). As an entitlement community, The City of Wichita Falls receives an annual allocation of CDBG funds, contingent upon submission of an approved Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan. The regulations implementing the CDBG program are found at 24 CFR Part 570. To review the regulations in their entirety, visit HUD's website.
