Did you know the City partners with several agencies to help our residents who are most in need? In a recent survey we found that most of our residents aren’t aware of the help that’s out there. If you see a service below that you or a loved one can use, call the number to see if you qualify.

We support these services through the small Community Development Block Grant program (CDBG) the City manages. These are federal funds annually granted to the City “to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities” primarily to benefit people with low- and moderate-incomes (LMI). Through these funds, the City supports key services and provides infrastructure improvements in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.
