THE CITY OF DETROIT NEEDS YOUR INPUT!
Every five years, the city of Detroit submits a Consolidated Plan to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Housing and Revitalization Department (HRD) is preparing the FY 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan.
The plan identifies housing and community development needs and sets the city’s strategic objectives and activities to address its housing and community development needs through federal block grant funding from HUD. Funding includes Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), Housing Opportunities for Persons with HIV/AIDS (HOPWA), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).
Then, for each year of the five-year period, the city must submit an Annual Action plan which outlines how the city will spend its annual federal grants from HUD. Funds can be used for a wide range of activities such as affordable housing, public facilities and infrastructure improvements, slum and blight removal, public services, and economic development.
The city is looking for help to identify needs, set priorities, and allocate funding. Please use the web links below to complete the survey:
