During the 2017-2018 program years, funding from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Programs have funded a variety of projects throughout Pasco County.  As part of our efforts to keep citizens informed of the status of these projects, the 2017 Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report, Summary of Accomplishments Report, Financial Summary Report, and the Summary of Activities Report covering the period of October 1, 2017, through September 30, 2018, is available for review for a 15-day comment period from December 13, 2018, through December 29, 2018, here. Pasco County will consider any comments or views of citizens received during the public-comment period.  A summary of comments or views will be attached to the performance report and submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on December 30, 2018.  Contact Charlene Daprile, Assistant Community Development Director at or 727-834-3447 if you have any questions, or would like to discuss the report.

What We Do

The mission of the Community Development Department is to improve the living and housing conditions of very low, low, and moderate income persons through the fair, ethical, and honest administration of Federal and State grant funds.

We do this through the administration of the County's neighborhood revitalization, housing and homeless programs utilizing Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP), Housing Preservation Grant (HPG) and Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funds. The Department also is the principal government agency for Pasco County for Homeless Programs and administers the Housing Finance Authority.

Annually, we receive approximately $8 million dollars to assist the very low to moderate income citizens of Pasco County. Some of our activities include:

  • Neighborhood Redevelopment 
  • Homebuyer Programs 
  • Homeowner Rehabilitation 
  • Not-for-profit Agency Housing Development 
  • Homelessness Prevention and Assistance 
  • Funding Public Services
