In an effort to highlight the tremendous success of the Community Development Block Grant Program in Cobb County, the program's staff and the City of Smyrna will host a CDBG Day. This celebration will also highlight the City of Smyrna as the newest CDBG entitlement community in Cobb. The local CDBG Program Office administers a variety of federal grant programs through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Since it began in Cobb in 1982, the CDBG Program has brought more than $85 million to the county and its municipalities to fund public facilities and public services that improve the social, economic and physical environment of low and moderate income persons, as well as special needs individuals residing in Cobb County. Non-profit organizations receiving CDBG funds provide a wide variety of services, such as: after-school programs, day care, domestic violence and family crisis intervention, housing opportunities, shelter for the homeless and disabled, literacy programs, employment training, senior services, transportation and health care services.
