Community Development & Housing

Responsibilities

The Department of Community Development and Housing administers federally funded Housing and Urban Development programs, Home Improvement Loan Programs, Home Investment Partnership Program, First-Time Homebuyers Program, Community Development Block Program, include emergency home repair and heater replacement. The Burlington County Continuum of Care (CoC) implements comprehensive strategies for the response to, reduction in, and hopeful elimination of homelessness in our community.  This planning includes federal, state, and locally funded programs to ensure the safety, rapid re-housing, and prevention of homelessness to our most vulnerable citizens.

The CoC is authorized by the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act and the CoC Interim rule (24 CFR 578) to provide a comprehensive response to homelessness.  It is governed by a board delegated by the Coc to direct the development and implementation of the Coc plan and ensure compliance.
