Building a Stronger Community
County Executive Edward P. Mangano established the Nassau County Office of Community Development (OCD) as the administrative agency to implement and monitor the programs and grants initiated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. We are dedicated to building a stronger community through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), and the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program, as well as other programs.

Our mission is to support under served communities by providing decent housing, suitable living environments, and expanding economic opportunities principally for low and moderate income people.
