Teresa V. Campo, M.P.A., CZO, CDA
Community Development Coordinator

I am excited for the opportunity to be part of the vision here in the City of Monroe.   We are in the planning stages of identifying needs and seeking tools  to design programs that serve community development and housing for our City.  As part of that initiative we will be facilitating a networking group called the ‘Community Development and Housing Coalition’ to focus on building collaborative partnerships as well as an opportunity to share information and identify available services and resources.  I will be reaching out to you the community (groups, associations, government and non governmental agencies) to invite you to be part of this initiative.  If you would like to be part of this effort please  or you can contact me at 704.282.4526. 

 

 

 

CITY PARTNERSHIPS

          

 

DOWN PAYMENT  ASSISTANCE  

The City partners with the Monroe-Union County Community Development Corporation  in providing equal housing opportunities* for low income households through funding from the City for down payment assistance. (*Area and Program Participation Restrictions Apply.) 

INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT – CDBG

Due to the population growth of our area, the City had an opportunity to seek Community Development Block Grant funding from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development through Union County, NC, combining our populations with four other cities to be designated an Urban County through a Collaborative Agreement.  Through this partnership, the City received an award from the County in 2016 for an infrastructure project on Concord Avenue.  The scope of work is for a new sidewalk (1,880 linear feet) that will be from the intersection of Engleside Street to the intersection of Loma Street.  The project requires an environmental review before funds can be committed to the project.  The City issued a Request or Proposals for qualified firms to submit there proposals by January 20, 2017.  We received three qualified proposals and have asked for additional information with a closing date of February 27, 2017.  We anticipate making the award in March, 2017 and will provide updates here, as they are noteworthy.

For more information on HUD Urban Counties Urban County Information

The City of Monroe has submitted a request for additional infrastructure assistance from Union County, NC for Fiscal Year 2018, the application closed  February 17, 2017.  We will provide project information and status of the award, as it is available.
