The Housing Development Division of the Community and Economic Development Department provides service and technical assistance that ultimately result in safer, more attractive neighborhoods. The City of Tacoma, in partnership with the non-profit housing community, researches options for providing more affordable housing in Tacoma.
We also provide home repair and rehabilitation loans, homeowner assistance in working with contractors, and down payment assistance loans. All of these services are provided to low-income homeowners, many of whom are elderly and/or persons with disabilities, and homebuyers. We also work with neighborhood development organizations to improve rental and owner occupied housing, eliminate blight, improve household and neighborhood safety and stimulate economic development. We are responsible for administering the federally funded housing programs, which include the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership, the Neighborhood Stabilization Program II and assuring that participating agencies comply with applicable regulations. As part of this administrative responsibility, every five years we update our Consolidated Plan which includes an Annual Action Plan (AAP) for the programming of federal housing and community development funds. Because of the Housing Development Division, the community benefits from increased job opportunities, improved neighborhoods, reduced blight and crime and an overall sense of pride for their neighborhood.
