Hudson Community Development and Planning Agency
Hudson Community Development & Planning Agency’s [HCDPA] mission is to:
Foster and promote services to low-to-moderate income persons who reside in Hudson; and to administer other resources to promote community development.
HCDPA was established as the City’s Urban Renewal Agency. HCDPA is a corporate governmental agency, constituting a public benefit corporation. Although urban renewal agencies were initially created for the purposes of implementing the Federal Urban Renewal Program, many, such as HCDPA have remained active and vital by aggressively initiating and managing a broad range of community development activities.
