At first glace your Office of Community Development might not seem like much. But once your Community Development department in your local city, town, county, parish level gets hold of some serious federal grant money offered by HUD your Community Development people can be proactive and create solutions that lead to a rapid recovery plan or they can be reactive in that they do the minimum and only react when public outcry or other issues drive them to respond.
