The Kentucky Small Cities Community Development Grant Program is responsible for giving out around $29,000,000 each year. These funds come from the United States Housing and Urban Development (HUD) program and may be used to build affordable housing for low income families and individuals, to build community housing projects, to create public facilities, to foster economic development, to aid in emergency relief funds, and for general approved public service.

In truth, the entire community benefits from this program, since it makes for a better, happier, safer place to live for all people. However, those who benefit the most tend to be low income families and individuals. Through the program, they can secure safe, decent housing at a price they can afford, and they can also enjoy opportunities they wouldn’t have had otherwise. Many people who receive assistance from the program go on to live very productive lives and to give back to their communities as thanks for what they have received.
