Community Development

The City of White Plains is designated as an Entitlement Community by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and as such, receives annual funding through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The CDBG Program is a principal revenue source for local communities to address the roots and consequences of poverty. The primary objective of the CDBG program is the development of viable urban communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income. The White Plains Community Development Program is responsible for administering CDBG funds.

The City of White Plains 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan provides a comprehensive assessment of community needs and corresponding goals and objectives. Each year, the City prepares an Annual Action Plan which details specific actions for implementation of the Consolidated Plan. The Annual Action Plan for Fiscal Year 2015-2016 describes the City’s proposed use of approximately $820,000 in new federal funds anticipated under the CDBG program. Final funding depends upon official notification from HUD.

The Community Development Citizens Advisory Committee is an 11 member committee that represents the residents of White Plains in the development and administration of the White Plains Community Development Program.

The City of White Plains Community Development Program offers the following services:
