CitizenParticipation Plan – Clean Version

The mission of the Housing and Community Development Division is to administer funds to develop and help maintain a viable urban community by leveraging federal funds with other monies available to carry out housing and community development programs. As a catalyst for community involvement, the Division works with community-based public and private sector entities and organizations to create jobs, provide public services, create affordable homeownership opportunities, and improve the City's infrastructure and affordable housing stock. These efforts improve the quality of life for residents and stimulate economic vitality. The Division measures its success in these areas through services provided, resources generated, housing units renovated, grant assistance provided, jobs created, and number of capital improvement and infrastructure projects completed.
