What is CDBG and the Entitlement Program?

From 1975 to 1995, the City of Biddeford captured approximately $15 million in Community Development Block Grant Funds (CDBG) in competition with towns and cities throughout Maine.  In 2004, the City was awarded Entitlement status, joining 5 other Maine cities that receive annual allotments from the federal government and no longer have to compete for state-adminsitered CDBG funds.  The following summary explains the designation, activities and process for Biddeford's successful Entitlement Program.  Click on the headline to read more.
