It is administered by the Department of Housing and Community Development.

The Maryland CDBG Program reflects the State's economic and community development priorities and provides public funds for activities which meet one of the following national objectives, in accordance with the federal Housing Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, that:

  • benefit to low and moderate income persons and households;
  • aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight;
  • meet other community development needs of an urgent nature, or that are an immediate threat to community health and welfare.
