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 City of Anniston’s current CDBG budget provides support in areas such as street improvements, slum and blight clearance, and assistance to public service agencies.
