Community Development

What We Do

Mission: Improving the lives of Pasco’s citizens through homeless initiatives, neighborhood revitalization, affordable housing and community partnerships using state and federal funding.

Annually, we receive State and Federal Funding to assist the very low to moderate income citizens of Pasco County. Some of our activities include:

  • Neighborhood Revitalization 
  • Homebuyer Programs 
  • Homeowner Rehabilitation 
  • Not-for-profit Agency Housing Development 
  • Homelessness Initiatives 
  • Funding Public Services



Pasco County Community Development is soliciting applications from community organizations to administer rental, mortgage and utility assistance for income qualified Pasco households. The program will begin on August 1 and end on December 30, 2020. Agencies will be advanced funds, submit reports and respond to desktop monitoring on a monthly basis. These special funds cannot replace funds already budgeted, must be used by 12/30 and be responsive to COVID-19. Agencies can access up to 20% for administrative costs. The funding amounts will be $100,000 ($20,000/month for 5 months) or $250,000 *($50,000/month for 5 months). Agencies must ensure no duplication of benefits and utilize Pasco’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) for that purpose.  Please join us for a webinar on Tuesday, July 14th at 1 PM to learn more about this opportunity .  Please email to receive the meeting invitation.   Applications will be available after the webinar.   The deadline for submission Tuesday, July 21st by 4:00PM eastern standard time.   AS A REMINDER:  A SAM (System for Award Management) Number is required for those who plan to apply for these federal funds..

Down Payment Assistance Program Suspended

Pasco County Community Development will be suspending the Down Payment Assistance (DPA) program effective July 2nd, 2020. Applications for DPA will not be accepted effective this date. All reservations submitted before July 2nd will be honored, however, if a reservation is cancelled or denied, the lender will not be allowed to submit a new reservation.

Community Development will be streamlining and improving our DPA program while suspended and we are hoping the changes will make the process easier, quicker, and more efficient for everyone involved.
