Community Development Office

The Stamford Community Development Office (SCDO) administers federal assistance for Stamford's neighborhoods. For over 42 years SCDO has delivered United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds to qualifying neighborhoods for housing, public improvements, economic development and public services through projects and programs approved by the Mayor and the Housing/Social Services/Community Development Committee of the Board of Representatives and the Board of Representatives.

SCDO makes loans and grants to community groups and housing owners. Federal programs emphasize reinvestment in our community infrastructure--streets, sidewalks, housing. Funds are also provided to organizations that foster the development of people: day care, employment training, and programs for special needs populations.
