The City of Salisbury Community Planning Services Department facilitates neighborhood revitalization in the City's more economically stressed communities through overall master planning, historic preservation, small business development, as well as planning for recreation facilities and community centers.
This City of Salisbury receives funding from two federal programs under the US Department of Housing and Urban Development--the CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) Program and the HOME Program.
The HOME funds are from a regional consortium that consists of the counties of Cabarrus, Iredell, and Rowan. The City has received funds directly from HUD.
These funds, received July 1 every year, are utilized in conforming to three national objectives.
1) Benefit to low and moderate income persons
2) Eliminating slums and blight
3) Other community development needs having a particular urgency
The City of Salisbury has selected four neighborhood revitalization areas for community development funding in the Park Avenue, West End, East End and Jersey City neighborhoods.
