The Department of Redevelopment initiates and provides opportunities for low- to moderate-income citizens to live in decent, safe, affordable housing, and develops partnerships with current non-profit organizations to preserve and develop community facilities.
The residential division of the Department makes loans to non-profit agencies to create housing for low- to moderate-income persons, to make available emergency housing, and to assist non-profit service providers in the rehabilitation of physical facilities. This has resulted in the construction of approximately 200 new homes and the construction, rehabilitation or expansion of emergency housing and community facilities.
Any non-profit corporation that has the capacity to undertake and complete the rehabilitation or construction of housing for low- to moderate-income persons can apply for the housing and community facilities programs according to the program guidelines. Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDO's) are encouraged to apply.
All housing and community facility programs will be publicly advertised on a first-come, first-served basis when HUD's CDBG and HOME program funds are available. Applications will be available at the Department of Redevelopment.
