Neighborhood Economic Development (formerly ACCBO)


The Neighborhood Economic Development (NED) program (renamed from ACCBO program) provides grants for community organizations doing economic development activities in CDBG eligible neighborhoods. Although the program's name has changed, the Advisory Committee on Community-Based Organizations still reviews the funding requests for the NED program. This program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's CDBG program and administered by Community Development in the Office of Management and Budget.
