Affordable Housing For programs that preserve low-to-moderate income housing units and projects that create affordable housing communities.
Community Development We collaborate with groups that support economic development, create jobs and revitalize our community to attract new businesses to the area. 
Civic Initiatives Local pride is important, so we partner with associations that sponsor Town Days and other celebrations.
