 Madison County Community Development 

The Madison County Board established the Community Development department in 1975 to administer the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG), a program created by Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide Community Development Block Grant entitlement counties with resources to address a multitude of developmental needs.

In the following 40 years, Madison County Community Development has expanded its scope of operation to administer additional Federal, State of Illinois and local grant programs.  During the 2014 fiscal year, Madison County Community Development served as the administrator of more than 30 programs and a budget or more than $20.5 million, programs and monies that improved and enhanced the quality of life for county residents. 

Importantly, Madison County Community Development is committed to expanding economic opportunities, promoting affordable housing and suitable living environments, providing necessary emergency services and diligently working to alleviate conditions of poverty in Madison County.

Of particular significance is the positive economic impact Madison County Community Development administered programs.  In addition to directly and indirectly creating hundreds of jobs, countywide spending associated with Community Development administered programs effectively act as a stimulus helping to improve the economic viability of Madison County and its residents.
