The Department of Commerce, Grants Division, and its partner agencies are in the process of preparing the State Consolidated Plan for Housing and Community Development for the upcoming 5 years, 2016-2020. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires this Plan in order for the State to receive funding for the State Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships, Emergency Solutions (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) programs. The Plan will describe the State’s housing and community development needs, strategies, and priorities.
This Plan affects many communities and organizations across the State, and input from state and regional agencies, organizations, and local governments is vital to identifying needs and allocating resources. For this reason, we are asking individuals such as yourself to complete a brief online survey regarding community development and homeless needs. This will be used in planning for related aspects of the larger Consolidated Plan. Please note that you may also receive housing-related surveys from the State Housing Authority as they do their own needs assessment for the housing sections of the Plan.
To participate in the survey, just click on the link below.
Please forward the link and to others in your community or organization. (For example, to public works and planning departments, utility providers, economic development agencies and staff.) This will help us gather as much input as possible.
If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about the survey, please contact Ms. Liese Ross, Program Planning Manager at 803/737-1988 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
