Community Input

Public Meetings

Every five years, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires the City to develop a plan that guides how it will spend its annual federal grants that assist low-income communities and residents around the city. The City receives federal funds to assist businesses to create jobs; improve neighborhoods through projects that eliminate slum and blight; and provide affordable housing, domestic violence shelters, services for seniors, and fair housing services.  In the fall, the City held public hearings to gather input on how we should target those funds.  The Mayor has released the City's proposed budget for the first year of the City's Five-Year Housing & Community Development Consolidated Plan for 2018-2022.

Please join us and provide comments on the plan and proposed budget.
