CDBG Non-Profit Organizations

The CDBG Program has also provided much needed funding assistance to many Cobb County non-profit organizations, allowing them to acquire land and build new facilities, renovate/expand existing buildings, and provide essential services. Non-profits receiving CDBG funds provide an assortment of services, including after-school programs, day care, domestic violence and family crisis intervention, housing opportunities, shelter for the homeless and disabled, literacy programs, employment training and microenterprise assistance, senior services, transportation, and health services, among others. In 2008, CDBG funding was vital in providing essential services to over 19,000 new low-income persons in Cobb County.
