The CDBG Program provides grants to cities and counties to develop viable urban communities through the provision of decent housing, a suitable living environment and by expanding economic opportunities for low and moderate income persons.
The amount is decided by:
Extent of poverty;
Age of housing;
Growth lag in relationship to other metropolitan areas.
Guidelines are set by individual cities and counties. Priority is given to activities meeting at least one of the three broad national objectives for the program and at least one of the local community development objectives established by each city or county.
Analysis of Impediments
The communities within San Diego County have established a commitment to providing equal housing opportunities for their existing and future residents. This report, the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (commonly known as the "AI"), presents a demographic profile of San Diego County, assesses the extent of housing needs among specific income groups, and evaluates the range of available housing choices for residents. The AI also analyzes the conditions in the private market and public sector that may limit the range of housing choices or impede a person's access to housing. More importantly, this AI identifies impediments that may prevent equal housing access and develops solutions to mitigate or remove such impediments.
