Community Development Program

Community Development activities and programs are designed to strengthen the physical, social, and economic conditions of an area with a view toward making it a more healthful, prosperous, and gratifying place to live.

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, administered by the Community Services Division for the City, is an important tool for helping us tackle serious challenges facing our community.

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) determines the amount of each grant by using a formula comprised of several measures of community need, including the extent of poverty, population, housing overcrowding, age of housing, and population growth lag in relationship to other metropolitan areas.
