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

Office Changes - Coronavirus Response

City staff have undertaken efforts to minimize risks to our customers and employees as the risk of COVID-19 remains high in our community. We appreciate your continued cooperation and patience as we strive to limit the health risks to you and our employees. 


While the office is closed to the public, services are available via phone, email and online. Home buyer / repair applications can be picked up or dropped off right outside the office in a self-service area. In-person visits can be scheduled by contacting our staff:
