Monmouth County Community Development
The Community Development section coordinates, implements, and monitors compliance under several federal grant programs, including Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnership Program, Emergency Solutions Grant, and HEARTH homeless assistance grants.
Staff prepares the County’s 5-Year Consolidated Plan, which identifies the County’s housing and special population needs, and update annually, as required by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to receive funding and compiles detailed financial and programmatic information to report to HUD on the utilization of federal funding, including extensive data collection and analysis of program beneficiaries.
Working through various committees, Community Development staff oversees an annual budget of more than $7,500,000 in federal grants to fund:
Administer the First Time Homebuyer Program (down payment assistance)
Support the Fair Housing Board and Office
Provide funding for municipal infrastructure projects
Assist in financing new construction of affordable housing
Oversee home repairs for low income households
Provide rental assistance for special needs and at-risk individuals and families
Sponsor public services through local nonprofit organizations
The section provides shared services to municipalities through management of municipally funded Mt. Laurel Rehabilitation programs and providing funding and oversight for construction of affordable housing projects to assist municipalities to meet fair share housing obligations.
The Community Development section also partners with the County’s Office of Human Services and other stakeholders to eradicate homelessness in the County. In conjunction with Human Services the section applies for HUD’s Continuum of Care (CoC) funding; prepares a 10-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness and coordinates with local nonprofit organizations to conduct the annual Point in Time outreach survey. This effort to identify and report to HUD the number of homeless and at-risk families/individuals in the County is required to obtain annual federal HEARTH funding.
