Housing and Community Development

The Department of Housing and Community Development is comprised of three governmental agencies: The Department of Housing and Community Development, the Housing Authority and the Redevelopment Authority.

The Housing Authority and the Redevelopment Authority are quasi-governmental agencies, whereas the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) serves as the County chartered department responsible for the administration of the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) entitlement programs, including Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), HOME and the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) at the local level.
