Community Development

Overview

The Town of Babylon Community Development Program (CDP) develops programs to improve community facilities, principally for persons of low and moderate income.

Funding is provided by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program through the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (P.L. 93-383). This program, administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), requires that we develop our programs based upon a consolidated plan and that we work with Town residents and nonprofit agencies to identify needs.

Community Development Block Grant Programs

Our staff works very closely with three participating villages and various nonprofit agencies to develop the Town’s Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan applications. Community development projects meet HUD eligibility requirements that address the needs of the community. Citizen input is very important.

The Community Development Department prepared fiscal years 2020 to 2024 Consolidated Plan, which was approved by HUD. In addition, every year the department prepares and submits to HUD an Annual Action Plan for funding and approval. This plan details the annual housing and community development needs and programs for the Town.

Several not for profit agencies provide public service programs such as housing counseling, literacy training, etc. that benefit low-mod income residents within the Town.

Community Development Department is responsible for overseeing, managing and administering projects that receive funding from HUD. Projects include the construction and rehabilitation of parks, streets, sidewalks, roads, senior centers, and handicap accessibility features in various low-mod areas within the Town.
