The purpose of the Development Department is to coordinate partnerships with community groups, pursue grant funding for city projects, and administer the Community Development Block Grant.

The Development Department also offers Housing Programs to income eligible homeowners. The funding comes from U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. These programs provide health and safety services for low-income Marietta resident's homes.

The City of Marietta will hold the first of two public hearings in the development of its 2022 CDBG Action Plan on November 1, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. The meeting will also consider reprogramming unused 2018, 2019 and 2020 Action Plan funding for use in PY 2022 under the city’s present Consolidated Plan, including any necessary amendments to such plans to do so. The meeting will be held in Armory Community Room 10, 241 Front St. The Marietta Development Department invites citizen suggestions, comments or questions pertaining to city needs or projects. Citizens of low- to moderate-income are especially encouraged to participate in the meeting.

The City estimates that it will receive approximately $410,000 in CDBG Entitlement funds for CDBG Program Year 2022 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The City also proposes to reprogram an amount between $223,539 and $268,411 in unspent CDBG Entitlement funds originally received under the 2018-20 Consolidated Plan. The City estimates the receipt of no program income in 2022.

The City’s 2021-23 CDBG Consolidated Plan establishes goals relating to housing, infrastructure, neighborhood revitalization and the provision of public services. All activities in the City’s 2022 Action Plan must be within the scope of the 2021-23 Consolidated Plan, and the Consolidated Plan requires all assisted activities to be documented to meet the CDBG low-to-moderate income national objective. The range of all CDBG eligible activities and national objectives are detailed at 24 CFR Part 570, Subpart C. The City intends to limit its CDBG-assisted projects to those which will not result in displacement, and to those which are administratively feasible given available resources in compliance with all pertinent regulations.
