Community Development Block Grants
Warren County annually receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The primary objective of the CDBG Program, as set forth by Congress is "the development of viable urban communities, by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income." All projects must meet at least one of three objectives:
- Benefit to low-to-moderate income persons
- Prevention or elimination of slums or blight
- Meet an urgent need

Warren County CARE Project
The CARE program is a 24/7 rapid response intervention for children who are present on the scene of a substance overdose of a parent or loved one. The goal of this program is to identify children in need of assistance in coping with trauma, assess the degree to which they may be vulnerable to abuse and neglect, and develop a comprehensive family-centered plan to address their needs, build resiliency, and decrease the likelihood that substance abuse will be transferred from one generation to the next. This will be done through collaboration between key agencies such as first responders, law enforcement and Children Services.
