The Community Development Division of the County Administrator's office, administers several development and housing programs, including those funded under the following federal grants: Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnership, Emergency Shelter and Supportive Housing grants. Offered great latitude by federal funding agencies, the Division has devised several innovative and comprehensive programs to meet the County's housing and community development needs. On behalf of local cities, the Division operates far-reaching public works programs which has had a significant impact on the infrastructure of the County's poorer neighborhoods for over twenty years. In addition, parks, senior centers and handicapped facilities have been substantially improved across the area. The cities of Tarrant County cooperate through the Mayors' Council of which the Community Development Division acts as the administrative arm.
The Resource Connection is designed to be a one-stop center that connects persons with education, employment, health or human service needs with available resources. Believed to be the first of its kind in the nation, the Resource Connection not only co-locates a wide variety of agencies and services in a campus environment, but will provide an automation network for case management, information and referral, and appointments that will facilitate customers' access to various services.
