Community Development

Department of Community Development is responsible for administering the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG); and the Regional Contribution Agreement (RCA) funds.

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides Asbury Park with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. Beginning in 1974, the CDBG program is one of the longest continuously run programs at HUD. The CDBG program provides annual grants on a formula basis to several units of local government and States.

Asbury Park is an Entitlement Community
The CDBG entitlement program allocates annual grants to larger cities and urban counties to develop viable communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and opportunities to expand economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons.

The Department also provides funding for road improvements, infrastructure projects, public facilities improvements (non-profit agencies), and community events. Please see CDBG Programs for a full description.
