Community Development


The Community Development Department is responsible for the Town's anti-poverty initiatives. Specifically, increasing access to affordable housing and expanding economic opportunities for low and moderate income persons.

To accomplish this, Community Development applies for and receives approximately $3.3 million annually from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for 3 housing programs: Community Development Block Grant, HOME, and Section 8 Housing Assistance Payment.

The Community Development Department is also responsible for compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Fair Housing Act, and for affirmatively furthering fair housing. The department is the point contact for the Census Bureau and disseminates census information to Town departments and to the public.
