Community Development & Housing

Welcome to the Sussex County Community Development and Housing Department.

The housing staff and I are committed to providing decent, safe, and affordable housing opportunities to people of low and moderate incomes in Sussex County. We work closely with federal and state agencies, as well as local municipalities to meet our goals of preserving Sussex County’s housing stock and promoting fair and affordable housing.

Since 1990, our office has assisted over 2,800 families with housing needs. We are proud of the success of our programs; however we know much more needs to be done for the residents of Sussex County. We currently have 800 families on our waiting list for housing rehabilitation and historically we receive enough funding to assist 125 jobs per year.

Please be sure to check out our new online Affordable and Fair Housing Resource Center.

Thanks for visiting our site; I hope you find all the information useful. Please don't hesitate to contact our department for any additional information.
