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.
Hudson County HOME-ARP Stakeholder Survey
The Hudson County Consortium was awarded $9,754,242 in HOME-ARP funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of the American Rescue Plan Act for the purpose of providing assistance to Qualifying Populations which include individuals or households that are homeless, at risk of homelessness, and other vulnerable populations to reduce homelessness and increase housing stability. The Hudson County Consortium must consult with agencies and service providers whose clientele include the HOME-ARP Qualifying Populations to identify unmet needs and gaps in housing or service delivery systems. Feedback is critical in assisting the Hudson County Consortium to create a meaningful allocation plan for approval by HUD to best address the needs of our most vulnerable populations with HOME-ARP funds.
