COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
Auburn’s Community Development programing offers various public service, public infrastructure, and hazard reduction programs. These are funded in part by Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), and the Office of Lead Hazard Control (OLHCHH) funds provided by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). CDBG funds have been used to assist with improvements to public facilities such as streets, sidewalks, development of parks, extension of public service, rehabilitation of housing and commercial properties, economic development, and public services. HOME funds are earmarked specifically for the development of new affordable housing units. OLHCHH funds are used for the remediation of lead hazards in residential housing.
For general inquiries, please email CDBG@auburnmaine.gov
