Phone: (757) 253-6864


The James City County Office of Housing and Community Development has been awarded a $1.4 million Community Development Block Grant for the Forest Heights Neighborhood Improvement Project.  The Project was selected as one of 24 in Virginia to receive more than $12 million from the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) through a competitive application process.


The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) will be used to develop paved roads, improve drainage facilities, rehabilitate homes, preserve open space and re-subdivide property within the 68-acre area along Forest Heights Road, Neighbors Drive and Richmond Road. Maps and additional information can be found online at


The Federally funded CDBG program is administered by the DHCD, and Virginia receives up to $21 million annually for this grant program. Most projects benefit low- and moderate-income individuals, and many projects are targeted for the prevention or elimination of blighting conditions.
