Community Development

Community Development

The Community Development Department administers federal, state and private grants on behalf of the City of Haverhill, for the good of all residents, particularly those of low to moderate incomes.  The most significant responsibility for the Community Development Department is the administration of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). 

The primary objective of the CDBG program is the development or re-development of viable urban communities by providing decent housing, creating suitable living environments, and expanding economic opportunities.  The goals and funding are principally to benefit low-moderate income persons and neighborhoods.  Entitlement funds are provided on an annual basis to the City by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
