Community Development Block Grant

Community Development Block Grant-government-grants-chris-johnson-free-moneyThis year marks the 40th anniversary of the Community Development Block Grant Program. The Community Development Block Grant program was enacted into law as part of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974. The Community Development Block Grant Program’s main purpose is to provide decent, safe and sanitary housing, a suitable living environment, and economic opportunities to low- and moderate-income people. To this day, the Community Development Block Grant Program remains the principal source of revenue for localities to utilize in devising flexible solutions to prevent physical, economic, and social deterioration in lower-income neighborhoods and communities throughout the nation.

How Community Development Block Grants Can Improve Your Neighborhood

Do you know what happens to areas where there’s an economic decline?

Revenues decline further because of the shrinking tax base, and the downward spiral continues. One way to prevent this is with an infusion of outside funding. One way a town or neighborhood can get a boost is with money from the federal government. One of the longest-running and most successful federal grant programs is the Community Development Block Grant. Here’s how it works. A sum of money in the form of a federal grant is provided

I ask them what it is they are seeking to fund exactly, and they have no idea. This approach is not likely to succeed, for several reasons. First, grants exist for a purpose.

What Is a Guaranteed Loan and How Can Your Business Benefit from It?

One form of business funding is a guaranteed loan. Some people may misunderstand what the word “guaranteed” means in this context, though. It does not mean that there is a guarantee that the loan will be made, no matter what. What the word “guarantee” means here is that the loan is backed by government funding so that the lending institution will be fully or partially reimbursed if the loan is not repaid.

Make Money with Real Estate Investments

RE-InvestmentMost people purchase real estate in hopes of earning wealth from their purchase, just as they would with any other investment asset. However, real estate is unique in that it has four distinct components of investment return. Essentially, here are the four ways you can make money as a result of real estate ownership:

– Appreciation in value
– Cash flows
– Income tax benefits
– Mortgage principal pay down

It’s important to note that just because there are several components of returns, that does not mean you will earn money on real estate investments.
