Housing Programs and Activities
Department activities involve to a large extent the administration of federally and state funded programs. The central programs are the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the Section 8 Rental Assistance Programs. The CDBG Program funds a fairly broad range of housing, neighborhood and downtown activities subject to a number of exceptions and limitations.
The Section 8 Program is funded by the federal government on the basis of a number of housing assistance vouchers for low and moderate-income persons. The Housing Choice Voucher Program, also known as Section 8, assists households with their monthly rent and utilities. Under this program, a monthly rent payment is made to the landlord on behalf of the tenant's household.
A public hearing has been scheduled before the Community Development Authority for Wednesday, November 19 at 5:30 PM, Janesville City Hall, Council Chambers for revisions to the Rent Assistance Program Administrative Plan.

Property Maintenance Complaints
The department is also responsible for addressing complaints from citizens regarding the condition of buildings, housing units, and nuisances (junk cars, trash, etc.). Upon receipt of a complaint, an inspection is conducted. To report a property maintenance complaint or concern, please call 755-3065.
