CDBG Target Areas
CDBG funds are targeted to areas of the City that have the highest concentrations of low and moderate income persons. In addition, these areas generally coincide with Madison's older residential neighborhoods and the central business district. Our map of the CDBG target area and CDBG scattered site areas may help you understand some of the geographical dynamics of the Madison Community and Neighborhood Development program.

CDBG Target Areas are those census tracts within the City where over 51% of the individuals have incomes of 80% of the median income or less. These are, by and large, areas where a large number of Madison's lower income people live, and areas where the City will take additional steps and fund general activities open to all neighborhood residents to improve the quality of housing, employment, services and environment.
CDBG Scattered Site Location Areas are areas of the City where there are relatively few numbers of certain types of assisted or shorter-term rental housing. The CDBG Office has traditionally worked with certain housing agencies to help them acquire housing in these areas, in order to open up greater opportunities for their residents to become integrated into the broader community of Madison.
These housing types include:
family units within publicly-owned housing;
family units within privately-owned housing assisted with Section 8 new construction funds;
homes of households assisted by Section 8;
Low Income Housing Tax Credit projects;
housing for homeless persons where residents stay fewer than 24 months and are assisted into permanent housing after that period; and
community-based residential treatment facilities (CBRFs).
