Community Development Office

The Community Development Office is primarily responsible for administering and managing the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. Annually, the Community Development Office applies for and administers the CDBG funds received from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The City primarily uses the funds to assist low- and moderate-income persons with public services, housing rehabilitation work and capital improvements in eligible areas.

The Office also coordinates other special projects, activities and programs including but not limited to maintaining census data for the city, citywide tree planting, and providing professional assistance to the Beautification Commission.

Capital Improvements Projects 

CDBG funds may be used to support capital improvements projects that are integral to the quality of life for the residents of the Farmington Hills community. Capital improvement projects take place in eligible areas with pressing capital improvement needs.

Housing Rehabilitation Program

The City offers a Housing Rehabilitation Program (HRP) that provides financial and technical assistance to low- and moderate- income Farmington Hills households to rehabilitate their owner-occupied single-family home. The HRP provides income qualified homeowners with interest-free deferred loans to make needed home improvements and repairs, with payment due upon the sale of transfer of title of the property. This activity will be available on a city-wide basis, but preference will be given to homes in CDBG eligible areas. Click on More Information for details specific to this program.
