Housing & Community Development
The Community Development office carries out the city's program of housing and community development for its target neighborhoods. The primary function is implementation of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and conducting its housing programs.
The CD Office prepares the annual CDBG application for funds, maintains the Consolidated Plan for Community Development and Housing Funds, contracts with sub-recipient agencies, conducts fair housing programming, and addresses a variety of federal requirements on a general basis and for project specific situations.
Housing programs administered by the division are loans for major projects and minor repair grant programs for owner occupants and the home buyer assistance program.
