Community Development serves the 21 municipalities of Somerset County
and its residents through the administration of Federal and County
funded programs fashioned to address a myriad of community, housing and
economic development needs.
We provide technical assistance to
program applicants, monitor grant fund recipients for compliance with
federal regulations, and process reimbursement payments for
program-related expenses. We liaise with other government bodies and
reporting agencies to provide accomplishment data for activities ranging
from sidewalk and sewer rehabilitation to housing down payment
assistance to rental assistance to daycare to veteran job training
services. The predominant beneficiaries of the programs are low and
moderate income clients and neighborhoods.
In addition, we
conduct community outreach events, needs surveys and donation efforts
throughout the year and provide guidance and resources to clients about
local non-profit agencies and current programs.
