The Hudson County Division of Community Development (Division) is responsible for administering Hudson County’s annual appropriation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Act (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant funds (ESG) from the United State Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The Hudson County CDBG Program includes the municipalities of East Newark, Guttenberg, Harrison, Hoboken, Kearny, Secaucus, Weehawken and West New York. The Hudson County ESG Program includes all municipalities with regard to homeless programs participating in the Jersey City-Hudson County Continuum of Care Strategy. The Hudson County Consortium (the “Consortium”) for the HOME Program includes the eight communities in the Urban Hudson County, Entitlement municipalities of Bayonne and Union City, and the Township of North Bergen. The Division provides a comprehensive and flexible source of funding for municipalities, non-profits, businesses and families to address a myriad of community, housing and economic development needs. Predominantly serving low and moderate income neighborhoods and families, its programs serve as valuable tools to empower people to create viable urban communities as well as safe, affordable and decent housing opportunities.
