Community Safety and Development



The Community Safety and Development (CSD)program's mission is to strengthen the Municipality’s neighborhoods while building strong individuals, proud families and a vibrant community. 

HUD Entitlement Programs (CDBG/HOME)

CSD administers the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)  Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) awards from the federal government, partners with citywide organizations to further affordable housing opportunities for low and moderate-income families, and engages neighborhoods in long-term community development planning. 


2018-2022 Housing and Community Development Consolidated Plan

The 2018-2022 Consolidated Plan and the 2018 Action Plan go together for HUD.  The Amendment #1 to the Consolidated Plan and the 208 Action Plan were non-substantial to officially add the National Housing Trust Fund.  To make Substantial Amendment #2 to the 2018 Action Plan, the cover on the 2018-2022 Consolidated Plan was updated.
