Annually, the Community Development Office applies for and administers the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The funds are used to provide assistance to low and moderate income individuals for housing rehabilitation work and capital improvements in eligible areas. The Housing Rehabilitation Program allows eligible homeowners to maintain and improve existing homes in the City. Capital projects are built in eligible areas with pressing capital improvement needs.
The Office also coordinates other activities and programs such as maintaining census data for the city, citywide tree planting, and providing professional assistance to the Beautification Commission.
Contact the Community Development Office at (248) 871-2543 for further information or questions.
