Community Development coordinates use of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds that the City receives as a sub recipient under Volusia County's entitlement program. The Citizens Advisory Task Force considers applications submitted by city departments and public/private agencies for non-housing requests - Capital Improvement Projects and Public Service Activities - for use of these funds and makes recommendations to the City Commission for their expenditure. These funds must be used for the CDBG low-to-moderate income designated area. A Public participation meeting is advertised and held once a year in February. Applications are provided to those who are interested in applying.
