About Housing and Community Development

The Hudson County Division of Housing and Community Development works to end homelessness and promote the development of affordable housing and sound community development activities in Hudson County with the use of federal and local resources.

The Division is responsible for the planning, administration and oversight of three federal programs from the United Stated Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD): the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Programs. The office is also charged with administering the Hudson County Homelessness Trust Fund and the Social Services for the Homeless funding. Through these programs the Division provides funding to a wide range of agencies that provide direct services and affordable housing to Hudson County citizens.

In addition, the Division leads the Hudson County Alliance to End Homelessness and serves as the lead applicant to HUD for Continuum of Care (CoC) homeless assistance funding. While the CoC funds flow directly to the nonprofits providing housing and services within the community, the Division provides the staffing required to coordinate the process.
