Welcome to the City's Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).
If you need help buying a home or help fixing up your home, HCD may be able to assist you. The Department strives to improve the quality of life of City residents through the development of housing, social, and economic opportunities.
Home Purchase Assistance funding is now available!
HCD will provide assistance to eligible households buying a home within City limits to cover some of the down payment and closing costs.
New Town Homes for sale!
HCD has partnered with Oakton Preserve town homes to provide a valuable incentive opportunity for the purchase of new construction homes located in the western part of the City. Income eligible buyers may qualify for up to $20,000 in down payment assistance with closing cost paid by the seller.
Looking for social services?
HCD provides a host of social services through Vickers House.
Have you discovered an orange parking meter?
The Real Change Movement is a partnership between the Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County and the City of West Palm Beach. The program focuses on raising awareness about the issues of homelessness and generating new funds to help make a difference.
