2016 Community Development Week: March 28-April 1
National Community Development Week provides communities with an opportunity to showcase projects funded by federal community development programs, like CDBG and HOME. Montgomery County annually works with the Cities of Dayton, Fairborn, and Kettering, and Greene and Clark Counties to put together a program highlighting regional projects for Community Development Week. In 2016, the communities produced a brochure with information about how these programs have a positive impact on people in each community.
