Housing and Neighborhood Development works to improve Polk County's communities and help its most fragile residents.  It does this by using special state and federal grant funds for numerous projects.

This division manages the money it receives to build roads, drainage systems, playgrounds, housing for homeless veterans, homes for low and moderate income residents and tear down homes that are a blight in the community. Sometimes these projects take only months, but others can take years and must meet certain specifications.

The programs and services include:

  • Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) - more info
  • Demolition and Clearance - more info
  • Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) - more info
  • Home Investment Partnership (HOME) - more info
  • Section 3 - more info
  • State Housing Initiative (SHIP) - more info
  • Neighborhood Stabilization Program - more info
