National Community Development Week 2013

Release date: 03/19/2013
Sponsored by: Board of Commissioners

National Community Development Week - April 1-6, 2013


Since 1979, the Washington County Community Development Block Grant Program has provided the County with important and flexible assistance to meet the needs of its low and moderate-income residents through the funding of neighborhood revitalization, housing rehabilitation, public improvements, flood relief, and social services.  

Since 1992, the HOME Investment Partnerships Program has provided the County with a critical resource to fill the gap needed to finance the development of affordable housing.     

National organizations such as the National Community Development Association and the National Association of Housing Rehabilitation Organizations coordinate the national effort.  Participating members of the County's CDBG and HOME consortiums are making identical proclamations during this week.  In addition, our non-profit housing and service provider partners are also making similar proclamations in support of these valuable programs.

 

Read the proclamation.
