More About Community Development
With funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development,
the Cumberland County Community Development (CCCD) Office is required to implement
programs that meet one of the national objectives established through federal regulation.
CCCD programs must benefit low/moderate income families; aid
in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight; or meet an urgent need that
poses a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community.
Housing programs have been developed to preserve and expand the supply of decent,
safe, affordable housing in Cumberland County.
Economic Development programs assist "for-profit"
businesses with start-up or expansion loans. And there are funds for public
facilities and public service activities that help non-profit agencies carry out
programs such as job skills training, health services, transportation and other
needed services in the community.
Infrastructure improvements may also be addressed including
water/sewer, streets, sidewalks and flood drainage.
