Community Development

About Us

The mission of the Orange County Office of Community Development is to effectively and efficiently obtain and utilize Federal, State, and local funds to improve the quality of life and living conditions for Orange County residents principally for those with low to moderate incomes through improvements to public facilities and infrastructure and the preservation and production of affordable, decent housing for homeowners and renters prioritizing community accessibility, long-term viability, and the empowerment of people with low to moderate income to achieve self-sufficiency.

The Office of Community Development administers the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnership (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) entitlement grants for Orange County.  These grants are received from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  In addition to the entitlement grants, the Office also actively seeks and administers other funding consistent with the Department's mission and capacity.

Major services currently provided include, but are not limited to grants to local municipal governments for infrastructure, public facility, and accessibility improvements as well as public services and funding to for-profit and not-for-profit developers of affordable homeownership or multi-unit rental housing projects.

The HUD funded federal programs serve the municipalities that make up the CDBG Urban County Consortium and the HOME Consortium.  Every municipality in Orange County participates in the CDBG Urban County Consortium, except for the Cities of Newburgh, Middletown, and Port Jervis, the Village of Kiryas Joel and the Town of Palm Tree.  Members of the HOME Consortium include every municipality participating in the CDBG Urban County Consortium and the Cities of Newburgh, Middletown, and Port Jervis.
