The Mission of the Community Development Agency is to positively impact the quality of life of the residents of the City of Youngstown. We will remain sensitive to the needs and concerns of our residents. We will efficiently and effectively administer resources to help eliminate slums and blight in our neighborhoods; foster suitable and positive living environments; and expand economic opportunities in our community. We will also multiply these resources by partnering with organizations whose activities contribute to our mission.
We recognize that we exist to provide “quality of life” services to the citizen’s of Youngstown. We will provide those services in a manner that is fair, consistent, compliant, and professional while continually affording our Citizens the dignity and respect that they deserve.
The Community Development Agency is charged with administering the City of Youngstown’s annual entitlement grants from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development. The amount of funding is based upon the city’s census and demographical information. Presently, the annual amount received is approximately $6 million. The funds are intended to address the priorities established in the City’s Five-Year Consolidated Plan, which is a sub-segment of the City’s Youngstown 2010 Citywide Plan.
