Community Development Department

The Community Development Department is responsible for overseeing an array of federal and local grant dollars in an effort to improve living conditions for low-to-moderate income persons by providing safe, affordable housing and economic opportunity, and by creating strong, vibrant neighborhoods.


Funds are used to support a range of community development needs, including infrastructure improvement, housing services, economic development assistance, and supportive services – all of which improve the physical and social environment of city neighborhoods and enhance the quality of life for all Warren residents.
