The CDBG Program provides the family 2 options for temporary housing: relocate to a private residence and receive a daily stipend; or relocate to an extended-stay facility at a daily rate subsidized by the City.
Does CDBG require a lead safe clearance test for homeowner rehab programs under $5,000? Our understanding is that clearance is not required if the disturbance of the paint surface is de minimis. Clearance is not required when painted surface areas are below HUD's de minimis threshold (only). When clearance is required, HUD's Lead Safe Housing Rule (LSHR) requires a clearance examination be done by an independent party instead of the certified renovator's cleaning verification procedure.
To speak with a CDBG staff person, call 770-794-5437.
Example One: CDBG Funds as Operating CostsAgency XYZ receives funds in 2007 for operating costs for their tutoring program for low-to-moderate income school children.

Example Two: CDBG Funds to Purchase Real PropertyAgency ABC receives CDBG funds to purchase a building that will function as a homeless shelter. ABC is required to submit monthly reports for as long as Cobb County receives CDBG funding plus five years after the last allotment is granted to the County. Owners of real property purchased with CDBG funds may sell or transfer ownership of property to another entity; however, sale or transfer may discontinue the eligible activity.
