About CDA

Overview of the Community Development Administration's mission and access staff contact information.

The Community Development Administration (CDA) serves as the City of St. Louis’ clearinghouse for federal, state, and local funds. CDA works to implement the Mayor's economic justice agenda by funding a wide range of public and nonprofit entities to provide public services, build affordable housing, combat blight, and conduct various other community development activities.

CDA applies for, receives, and administers federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds, for city development activities and program activities eligible to be funded with HUD funds. CDA ensures compliance with all lawful and applicable rules, regulations, and reporting requirements imposed by HUD in connection with its grants of funds.

To accomplish its mission, CDA is divided into three main divisions: Administration, Construction (which includes housing programs and residential development), and Fiscal.
