About the Community Assistance Division

Our mission is to promote and preserve the integrity and safety of neighborhoods. This work is accomplished by:

  • Offering programs to revitalize older neighborhoods that are showing signs of deterioration.
  • Providing formal and informal training and educational information to Homeowners Associations and individual citizens
  • Offering other programs funded by the Federal Government aimed at assisting individual citizens and not-for-profit entities in developing or maintaining the integrity of homes and neighborhood areas.

An active neighborhood brings together neighbors who share common interests about their property, homes and community. There is strength in numbers and having a unified voice can make a difference. Let us help you and your neighbors take an active role in your community.
