Housing & Neighborhoods Department

Last updated Nov. 30, 2017 - 11:20 am

Our department improves the quality of life for Raleigh's residents by adding to the amount of affordable housing, improving existing affordable housing, revitalizing older neighborhoods, and supporting related human services. The department is committed to improving and maintaining the quality of life and environment for all City of Raleigh citizens by enforcing City codes.

We offer a variety of programs to help people of every age and background become more active in their neighborhoods and the wider Raleigh community. The department helps individuals, groups, and communities recognize their skills and assets, mobilizes people to take action on their own behalf, and connects them to appropriate resources so they can achieve positive results for their neighborhoods and communities.
