Community Development

The Community Development Division joins local partners with resources to increase access to housing, support capacity-building for local non-profit organizations, to create a sustainable community, and to promote neighborhood revitalization. The Division is primarily responsible for managing federal grant programs, including:

  • Community Development Block Grant
  • HOME Investment Partnerships Program
  • AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service to America
