Community Development

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. 

Explore the Community Development pages for more information on the collaborative efforts for grants and programs, fair housing, planning and the Jeffco housing exchange.

These collaborative efforts focus on ensuring that all stakeholders are at the table because all sectors of the community have a vital role in addressing these issues.    

Housing Assistance

While Jefferson County Human Services doesn’t deliver housing assistance directly to county residents, it does administer state and federal funds for a variety of homelessness, housing, economic development and infrastructure improvement initiatives. 

All projects are managed and coordinated with a wide array of partners throughout the county, including private businesses, nonprofit organizations, faith-based organizations and other local government entities.
