Community Development

Community Development addresses Aurora’s needs, goals and strategies regarding housing and community development. The city's Community Development Division is funded by various housing grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to carry out its mission to create safe, decent and affordable housing and other community-based programs. The priorities developed in the city's five-year consolidated plan target a wide range of issues, from basic needs such as the availability of affordable housing for families and individuals, to overall community quality of life issues such as the reduction or elimination of blighting influences in Original Aurora, which is the city’s historical business and residential district. In addition, this plan identifies economic opportunities within the community, the provision of support services for all residents, and the prevention of homelessness.
