Grants & Programs

Community Development fosters sustainable, inclusive communities through collaboration with partners to reduce poverty and enhance economic development by providing access to housing and social services resulting in self-sufficiency for its most vulnerable populations.  

Community Development Block Grant Program - CDBG

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs.

Jefferson County elected to target the 2019 CDBG funds to the development of decent, safe and affordable housing, and contribute to the development of sustainable communities by preserving existing housing stock or promoting affordable rental or home ownership opportunities for Low-Moderate Income (LMI) families.

HOME Investment Partnership Program


Jefferson County has an online rolling application system to fund the development of affordable housing for low-income, very low-income and extremely low-income households.

Financial assistance is provided to municipalities, other government and nonprofit agencies, private and nonprofit housing developers and other lenders to support the creation or preservation of long-term affordable housing countywide.

Available funding includes loans from the HOME Investment Partnership Program and the Community Development Block Grant. These funds are administered by Jefferson County through the HOME Consortium and the Urban County Intergovernmental Cooperation Agreement, with approval by the Board of County Commissioners.

Jefferson County housing development loans are used for a variety of rental and homeownership housing activities, including:

  • New construction
  • Acquisition
  • Substantial/Moderate Rehabilitation
  • Adaptive Reuse
  • Preservation
  • Transitional
  • Supportive
  • Mixed-income

A special emphasis will be placed on projects creating Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) for individuals and families who were once homeless and continue to be at imminent risk of homelessness. Housing activities can serve families, individuals, seniors and special needs populations.

Type, terms, and conditions of financing will vary depending on the availability of funding resources and the proposed activity.

 *This funding application is for development projects only. Other projects (i.e. services, homeowner rehabilitation, public facilities, etc.) may be considered through an annual CDBG application process
