Community Development Agency

The Incorporated Village of Patchogue Community Development Agency (CDA) was established in 1980. It is Federally funded by the Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The basic purpose of the CDA is to help low to moderate income people. The Patchogue Village CDA is limited to helping those income eligible village residents.

The mission of the Village of Patchogue Community Development Agency is to provide a suitable living environment and viable community for all Village residents. Through the development of community improvement projects its hope is to provide safe, decent and sanitary housing conditions for very low-income families.

The CDA meets on the 1st Thursday of each month at 7:00pm at the Patchogue Village board room. The public is invited. Check Calendar for 2016 CDA Board Meeting dates.
