    Community Development

    CD Logo

    CD LogoCD LogoCD Logo
    The Montgomery County Community Development Office works with 28 local jurisdictions, including cities, villages, and townships, to address each community's individual need. The Community Development Office assists local jurisdictions with projects that improve public infrastructure, parks and community centers, provide affordable housing and emergency home repair, assist businesses, and address vacant and blighted structures.

    The majority of Community Development Office projects are federally funded by programs from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 

     The following are some of the programs currently administered:

    • Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) -Infrastructure Improvements; Economic Development; Physical Improvements; Housing Improvements; Business Incentives. All programs benefit low and moderate income areas/individuals.

    • Home Investment Partnership (HOME)  Homeowner Rehabilitation; Rental Rehabilitation; Multi-family New construction for families and elderly; Tenant-Based Rental Assistance; SRO Housing; and Group Homes for Special Populations.

    • Emergency Solutions Grant Program (ESG) Provides operating costs and essential services for emergency shelters. Also provides funds for prevention, diversion, and rapid re-housing.

    The Cities of Dayton and Kettering also receive funding directly from HUD, so Montgomery County generally does not provide funding for projects within these jurisdictions. However, Montgomery County has collaborated with these jurisdictions on projects in the past.

    Summer YouthWorks Volunteers

    The Montgomery County Community and Economic Development Department participates in the Summer YouthWorks program, which is sponsored by the Montgomery County Department of Job and Family Services (MCDJFS). For 2014, three YouthWorks interns assisted the Department with filing, data management, and records retention, organization, and disposal. They also helped to landscape two houses for low-income individuals at CountyCorp's "Burgers and Bushes" event; the houses in Harrison Township were constructed by Youth Build/AmeriCorps.

    Youthworks Interns  The staff of the Community and Economic Development Department would like to thank Ginnae McIntosh, Deoncia Lynch, and Ocheya Keith for all their hard work.
