The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program awards funds to support economic development, housing and community-based initiatives that primarily benefit low- and moderate-income persons or households. Funding for the CDBG program is provided to New Hampshire through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. New Hampshire’s statewide CDBG program has been administered by CDFA since 2003.

Eligible applicants for CDBG funds include most New Hampshire incorporated counties, cities, and towns. A nonprofit agency may also apply through its municipality or county as a sub-recipient of CDBG funds.

Please note the federally-designated entitlement communities of Dover, Manchester, Nashua, Portsmouth, and Rochester are ineligible to apply as they receive CDBG funds directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

All applications must be received by CDFA through its online grants management system ( Additional information on the CDBG Program, including application information and resources, can be found by visiting
