About the Community Development Commission
The Sonoma County Community Development Commission (CDC) is established as a separate public and corporate entity pursuant to Section 34110 of the California Health and Safety Code which enables a community to have the option of operating its redevelopment agency and its housing authority under a single governing board. The Board of Supervisors is designated as the Board of Commissioners of the CDC and as the governing board of both the Housing Authority and Redevelopment Agency.
The CDC has been administering affordable housing programs since 1978. The CDC administers a range of programs designed to assist low to moderate income homeowners and tenants and to encourage commercial revitalization. Rental assistance is offered to lower income tenants through subsidized rents. Rehabilitation loans are offered to landlords to maintain existing affordable rental units. Lower income owner-occupants are provided financial assistance to rehabilitate their home.
Another function of the CDC is to encourage and support neighborhood and community preservation. This includes revitalization of distressed neighborhoods and improvement of public facilities (such as streets, sidewalks, sewer and drainage systems) in conjunction with other public agencies. The CDC also undertakes activities to upgrade commercial centers within the County redevelopment areas.
