Community Development

The Community Development Department administers  the federal Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership program funds.The City receives these funds annually from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Details on Annual Plans and Accomplishment can be found within the Housing and Urban Development tab.

The CDBG program funds a wide range of community development activities directed towards neighborhood revitalization, affordable housing, economic development, and the provision of improved community facilities and services.  View our photo gallery to see current projects.

Federal regulations require that programs and projects must benefit low and moderate income persons. The City is encouraged to expend funds to eligible areas as defined within the regulations.  The map below illustrates the HUD eligible areas.
