CDBG is a program of HUD and was created in 1974 as part of Title I of HCD ACT of 1974, as amended. The primary objective of Title I is the development of viable urban communities. These viable communities are achieved by providing the following, principally for persons of low-and moderate-income: 

  1. Decent housing;
  2. A suitable living environment; and
  3. Expanded economic opportunities.

The CDBG Subcommittee prepares and recommends to the full Select Board a preliminary budget of the Town’s annual Community Development Block Grant allocations for Board approval.

The Citizen Participation Plan provides for and encourages residents to participate in the development of the Town of Arlington's Consolidated Plan, Annual Action Plan, any substantial changes to the Consolidated Plan or Annual Action Plan, and the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports (CAPER). Adopted by the Select Board on December 2, 2019, and amended on May 2, 2020, this plan amends and supersedes the Town’s existing Citizen Participation Plan, and is in compliance with Section 104(a)(3) of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974.
