Community Development

Camden County’s Office of Community Development offers a wide range of services. Programs include the Home Improvement Program (HIP), programs for first time homebuyers, municipal construction projects, and social services projects.
 
 
 
Camden County is in the process of preparing a Five-Year Consolidated Plan for the program years 2020-2024 and an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice report.  These documents are required by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to distribute funds for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and other federal programs. These documents affect municipalities and organizations across the County, and input from residents, county agencies and services organizations are vital to identifying needs and allocating resources.  For this reason, we are asking individuals to complete this online survey as part of the planning process. This will help us gather as much input as possibleIt is important that we receive your input in order to prepare a complete and accurate plan that effectively reflects our County’s needs and priorities.  The results of the survey will be included in the Draft Consolidated Plan and Analysis of Impediments report which will be available for public comment and discussed at public hearings in April 2020. Take Survey Here.

 

Notice of Award

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded Camden County $2,147,747 in Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program funds as Authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), Public Law 116-136. These special ESG funds are to be used to prevent, prepare for , and respond to the coronavirus pandemic 2019 (COVID-19) among individuals and families who are homeless or receiving prevention activities to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19.

 As a result of COVID-19, the County has experienced a significant loss in homeless shelter capacity due social distancing and capacity limits. Camden County intends to use these ESG funds to create new homeless shelter capacity for those displaced by COVID-19.
