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.
The Community Development Agency began its giving back initiative, ComDev Cares, on October 7, 2017. This initiative brings together Community Development employees from all eight divisions in an effort to give back to the community. Cobb employees are also given an opportunity to donate $1 toward a quarterly charity in order to wear blue jeans.

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.
