Development Programs
The Licking County Development staff, on behalf of the Licking County Commissioners, is responsible for the adminstration of the various grant programs listed below:

Licking County receives the CDBG federal funds that may be used for a variety of housing, economic development and infrastructure improvements, which must benefit low-to-moderate income citizens or prevent or eliminate slum and blight. Licking County has also received CDBG funds for special economic development and water and sewer projects.

Housing Rehabilitation
Licking County Development staff administers a county-wide housing rehabilitation program utilizing State of Ohio Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP) and other funds. These funds are available to low- and moderate income homeowners to assist them with making needed repairs to their homes. This program helps to preserve existing housing stock that is considered to be affordable to low- and moderate-income persons.

Fair Housing
The Ohio Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination—in regard to housing—on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, ancestry, religion, disability or familial status. Licking County provides information and referral services in regard to landlord-tenant disputes, housing discrimination, predatory lending and other housing-related issues.
