Housing & Neighborhood Development

The Housing and Neighborhood Development division administers a wide variety of housing and community development programs that contribute to the quality of life, affordability and sustainability of Salt Lake City's diverse neighborhoods, and support State goals to eliminate chronic homelessness. The Division partners with a variety of non-profit, governmental and lending agencies using City, private and federal funds for these purposes. The Division also oversees fair housing laws and monitors grants received by the City.    

Housing Programs

Housing programs include a housing rehabilitation program for single-family homes, a first time homebuyer program, a housing trust fund that assists in the development of affordable and special-needs multi-unit housing, grant funds that assist non-profit housing providers with the rehabilitation of existing housing units, and grant funds to agencies that support individuals and families as they transition from homelessness to permanent housing.

Community Development Programs

Community development programs include the capital improvement program (CIP) that sets aside City funds for the development of buildings, street and park improvements citywide, grant funds that support the development and improvement of streets and park facilities in low income neighborhoods. It also includes grant funds that add amenities like decorative street lighting to neighborhoods, and federal grant funds that support non-profit agencies to provide important services like health care, after-school programs, and food pantries to low income residents.
