The Community Development Division works closely with the Wayne County Land Bank in identifying property that is ideal for redevelopment. The Division also works closely with the Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention Program (MFPP) to help residents stay in their homes during tough economic times.
EDGE’s Community Development Division is charged with administering a variety of federally funded programs designed to help revitalize communities and spur economic activity at the neighborhood level. Among the programs administered through the Community Development Division are federal Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funding, Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) grants, and Weatherization funds. Our philosophy is to work hand-in-hand with local governments, community nonprofits, and faith-based organizations to ensure that federal funds are spent in the most effective manner possible.
