The Grants Administration/Neighborhood Development Division participates and administers grants that assist city residents in the revitalization of their homes. Citizens that wish to benefit from the rehabilitation efforts must be homeowners and income eligible. Anyone that wants to be placed on a waiting list may contact the department by contacting Karen Kennedy at 919-718-4657 extension 5391, or via email.
The Division also receives Fair Housing Complaints from individuals who feel they have been discriminated against based on their national origin, sex, handicap or familial status in their search for housing. The planners in this division promote Affordable Housing Programs through disposition of Urban Renewal Lands and partnerships with local non-profit developers such as Brick Capital Community Development Corporation, Sanford Affordable Housing Development Corporation, and Sanford Area Habitat for Humanity.
