Housing and Community Development

The Housing and Community Development (HCD) Division of the Neighborhood and Family Services Department strives to promote and preserve the integrity, sustainability and livability of Avondale’s neighborhoods while improving the quality of life of low-income residents.  The HCD Division has developed successful programs that address the needs of Avondale residents while strengthening the very fabric of its neighborhoods through comprehensive neighborhood preservation and revitalization strategies.

Primarily, funding for these programs is obtained through grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The City of Avondale targets its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) funds towards lower income neighborhoods and residents.  The City undergoes an extensive planning process every year to ensure that the priority needs of the community are being addressed.  This process is open to the public and your participation is encouraged.
