The goals of Community Development are to encourage the expansion and accessibility of human services; expand and improve public facilities and infrastructure where needed; and to expand economic opportunities in the community for low- and moderate- income residents of the city. Additional goals include providing for an adequate supply of safe and affordable housing, rehabilitation of rental and owner occupied residential property and expanding home ownership opportunities.
The City of College Station receives federal funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) grant. The Community Development Division of the Community Services Department is tasked with administering these grant funds through several programs designed in accordance with the division's goals, federal regulations and input from the City Council.
