HousingFunds Distribution

The Office of Housing and Community Development helps plan the distribution of funds including: 

  • Community Development Block Grant Funds (CDBG)
  • Home Investment Partnership Funds (HOME)
  • Emergency Solution Grants (ESG)
  • Housing and Opportunities for Persons With Aids (HOPWA)

The funds are to improve housing, facilities, promote economic development for low to moderate income households as required by HUD. Learn more about funding programs.

In addition to helping with housing needs, the funds are used to promote neighborhood revitalization in older central city areas. This is accomplished through demolishing substandard housing, building new infrastructure and working with communities to build new housing for low to moderate income families.
