The Office of Planning and Development administers applications and provides assistance to the recipients of several grant programs whose goal is to fund activities that will benefit disabled or low-income persons, expand the supply of decent, affordable housing and address homelessness.  

Community Development Block Grants are made available to non-entitlement municipalities and organizations serving low to moderate income persons. Funds may be used toward projects providing housing rehabilitation, public services, community facilities, improvements to infrastructure, development, and planning.
