Educate yourself about what Community Development's role is in Cobb County.
Around the Agency
The CDBG Program Office provides programmatic and financial oversight grant administration and management of HUD, DOJ, DHS, and FEMA funds awarded to Cobb County. Our office is responsible for planning, implementing, and managing day to day operations for these grant programs.
HUD’s CDBG and HOME grant funds have played a key role in servicing Cobb’s vulnerable low income populations and continues to do so. April 22-26, 2019 is National Community Development Week in support of these two valuable programs that have made tremendous contributions to the viability of the housing stock, infrastructure, public services, and economic vitality of our community.

Every month the Zoning Division prepares zoning analysis information, which provides analysis and staff recommendations for all rezoning, special land use permits, land use permit requests and variance requests. These items are presented to the Planning Commission, Board of Commissioners and Board of Zoning Appeals for their review, recommendation, and consideration.
