Community Development Block Grant

Pike County is expected to receive an allocation of $277,108 of FY2024 CDBG funds from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Funds will be used to meet one of three CDBG national objectives: 1) benefit low- and moderate-income (LMI) individuals; 2) aid in the elimination of slums and blight; or 3) meet a need having a particular urgency. At least 70% of the available funding must be used for activities which benefit low and moderate income persons. The proposed activities must benefit at least 51% low-moderate income persons in the service area to qualify as a low-moderate income project. The PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) has announced the application submission deadline in October of 2024.


The following types of activities may be eligible for funding under the CDBG Program: water and sewer line replacement and improvements; housing rehabilitation; construction of affordable housing; construction/reconstruction of public/community facilities; recreational facilities; public services that are new or provide quantifiable increases in the delivery of services; street improvements; historic preservation; removal of architectural barriers; code enforcement; economic development; acquisition and relocation; clearance and demolition; and general administration, planning, audit if required, and preparation of the CDBG application.


If Pike County would undertake activities that result in the displacement of families or individuals, then Pike County’s policy for minimizing such displacement would be in effect. Pike County is responsible for replacing all low- and moderate-income housing units that may be demolished or converted as a result of the use of CDBG funds.

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program supports community development activities to build stronger and more resilient communities. View our current CDBG programs here.
