Strategic Plan Review – 2015

Community Development

These programs traditionally serve low-income, elderly and special needs citizens within the County. These programs are typically grant funded and require specialized management to process applications, solicit bids, and manage projects.

Due the specialized nature of the management needed, most of the County’s Community Development work is now managed through the Piedmont Triad Regional Council and the Burlington Community Development Division.

More information can be found on their websites: or by calling (336) 904-0300. or by calling 336-222-5070.

Abandoned Manufactured Home Removal Grant

The Planning Department currently has an application in to renew its Abandoned Manufactured Home Program Grant.

In previous years, grant funding from the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources enabled the County to provide financial assistance for the removal and recycling of abandoned manufactured homes.
