About Us

The Office of Community Development serves the 39 municipalities of Morris County through its administration of the:

  • Community Development Block Grant
    • CDBG grants are available to non profits and participating municipalities applying for grants to fund activities within the realms of infrastructure and improvements, services, facilities and creation of affordable housing.
  • HOME Investment Partnerships
    • HOME grants are similarly available and target activities involving the creation of affordable housing; the Office also funds a Tenant Based Rental Assistance program.
  • Emergency Solutions Grant
    • ESG is geared toward providers dealing with homelessness.

The Office’s Homeowner Housing Rehabilitation Program (El Programa para la Reparación de Viviendas) serves to maintain affordable housing by enabling homeowners, experiencing major systems’ failures, to remain in their homes; it also assists towns in satisfying their affordable housing obligations.
