Community Development

The Department of Governmental Services works with the community to find funding resources that best match the community’s needs. We utilize our experience and expertise to give the community an understanding of all options for their projects. While not every project can meet current funding guidelines for approval, the Department is relentless in finding alternative funding to insure the community’s needs are met.
