ICC recognizes National Community Development Week
National Community Development Week focuses local and national attention on the importance of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program. It provides a united voice of support and harnesses the power of grassroots engagement to educate members of Congress and the community on the successes of the programs and their value to local communities. Celebrated this year on April 22–26, 2019, the week provides an opportunity for communities to showcase projects and programs and involve program partners in the week-long celebration The CDBG Program supports code enforcement, with more than $100 million directed towards enforcement activities in federal fiscal year 2017, and the Code Council is a long-time supporter of the program.
As a 2019 sponsor, the International Code Council joins the National Community Development Association, National Association of Counties, United States Conference of Mayors, Council of State Community Development Agencies, National Association of Regional Councils, National Association of Local Housing Finance Agencies, National Association for County Community and Economic Development, and National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials in recognizing National Community Development Week.
