Community Development

 

Our Mission is to improve the quality of life for Columbia's citizens by providing economic, housing, and social opportunities.

 

We are the fuel supporting the local economy by providing resources and opportunities for growth. Community Development administers federal, state and local funding and ensures compliance. Community Development programs increase homeownership and build neighborhood capacity through excellent customer service. Partnerships with banks, neighborhood and organizations allow us to improve the quality of life and continue to make Columbia a World-Class City.

 

Federal Entitlement Projects

 

These funds are granted through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and primarily benefit the low and moderate income population within the City of Columbia. In addition, the city received stimulus dollars though the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program to provide a surge in the economy during this economic downturn.
