Every year, Community Development Block Grant (CBDG) funds are distributed to the COGs throughout Allegheny County. With its annual allotment, SRCOG administers and funds a number of programs and projects on behalf of its member municipalities.
Important infrastructure improvements have been made over the years from the re-pavement of roads and installment of sewer lines to the reconstruction of playgrounds. The main use of these funds is the demolition of surplus blighted and abandoned buildings which pose a hazard to the community at large.
