CDBG Program Partners

CDBG Program Partners

The CDBG Program relies primarily on several key partners to plan and implement eligible program activities. These partners include:

  • CDBG Grantee. In the Entitlement Program, local governments are known as grantees. In the State CDBG Program, the state is the grantee.
  • Unit of General Local Government (UGLG). In the State CDBG program, a unit of general local government is the community funded by the state to undertake CDBG activities. It is always a local government such as a town, county, or village. In the State CDBG Program, these are often referred to as state grant recipients.
  • Subrecipient. A subrecipient is a nonprofit or public entity that assists the grantee to implement and administer all or part of its CDBG Program. Subrecipients are generally public or private nonprofit organizations that assist the grantee to undertake a series of activities, such as administering a home rehabilitation loan pool. Public agencies that are not a part of the grantee’s legal government entity can also be subrecipients, such as a water and sewer authority.
  • Community-Based Development Organization (CBDO). CBDOs are organizations that undertake

CDBG-funded activities as part of a neighborhood revitalization, energy conservation, or community economic development project. CBDOs can be nonprofit or some for-profit organizations, but cannot be government entities. Note that the State CDBG Program has a somewhat more broad definition of the organizations that may qualify to do these activities and it generally calls these organizations “nonprofit development organizations working under Section 105(a)(15) of the statute”. This guide will generally call these types of organizations CBDOs but states are encouraged to review the Guide to National Objectives and Eligible Activities for State CDBG Programs for additional information. This guide is available on the HUD website at library/stateguide/index.cfm.

  • Contractor. A contractor is an entity paid with CDBG funds in return for a specific service (for example, construction). Contractors must be selected through a competitive procurement process.
