Our Mission

The primary goal of the Office of Community Development (OCD) is to improve the quality of life for the Parish citizens. It consists of three programs:

  • Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
  • HOME Investment Partnerships Program
  • Emergency Shelter Grant Program

All work together to achieve this goal.

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The Community Development Block Grant promotes the viable development of communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income.

HOME Investment Partnerships Program

The HOME Investment Partnership Program is designed to provide local participating jurisdictions with flexible dollars to develop affordable housing strategies specifically targeting low-income residents.

Emergency Shelter Grant Program

The Emergency Shelter Grant Program provides emergency shelter assistance to eligible families at the Beautiful Beginnings Center.
