Housing Rehabilitation

Working with the Community Development Human Services Committee (CDC), local community groups and City Council, our staff administers the Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the City’s Human Services program. In administering these programs we work to ensure that Federal requirements benefiting low and moderate-income persons are met and that sound policies are established for allocating funds among various non-profit social services agencies serving the community.
