Community Development Funding
Community development includes community-driven efforts to create vibrant, healthy, and livable neighborhoods, while developing economic and employment opportunities for low-income residents. Historically, it has focused on affordable housing and jobs, but increasingly includes investments in parks, trails and public spaces as central to healthy, livable neighborhoods.
