  • Community Development

     

    While Human Services doesn’t deliver housing assistance directly to county residents, it does administer state and federal funds for a variety of homelessness, housing, economic development and infrastructure improvement initiatives. All projects are managed and coordinated with a wide array of partners throughout the county, including private businesses, nonprofit organizations, faith-based organizations and other local government entities.

    The collaborative efforts focus on ensuring that all stakeholders are at the table because all sectors of the community have a vital role in addressing these issues. The primary grants administered include:

    Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG)

    Priority is housing, economic development and infrastructure for low-income communities. Partners include private-sector businesses, local planning and zoning offices, economic development offices and nonprofit organizations.

    Community Services Block Grant (CSBG)

    Priority is job creation, employment and emergency services to help individuals reach self sufficiency. Partners include employment organizations like workforce centers, schools, faith-based and nonprofit organizations.

    HOME Investments Partnership Program (HOME)

    Priority is affordable housing and partners include faith-based and nonprofit organizations.
