The mission of the Office of Federal Program Development is to assist the federally funded programs and department of the Police Jury (the Calcasieu Business and Career Solutions Center, Housing, the Office of Community Services, and the Workforce Investment Board) in the development and coordination of quality services and programs that empower individuals, businesses, and community stakeholders in promoting self-sufficiency and economic development within Calcasieu Parish.

Additionally, the Office of Federal Program Development works with local non-profit, community, civic, and faith-based organizations (such as Volunteers of America, the Southwestern Louisiana Homeless Coalition, and the Volunteer Center of Southwest Louisiana) in leveraging resources that maximize federal and state funds received by the Police Jury to benefit the ultimate end users, the citizens of Calcasieu Parish.

The Office of Federal Program Development is also responsible for ensuring compliance with federal and state laws governing federally funded programs and departments. The Coordinator of Federal Program Development serves as the Parish Equal Opportunity Officer (EOO) for federal programs and provides direct supervision over the Housing Department.
