City Seeks Community Input on Federal Funding Strategy
(Wednesday, January 7, 2015) - Administrators with the Department of
Neighborhood and Business Development will host four community meetings in January to engage the general public and private stakeholders in the development of a five-year strategy for the City's Consolidated Plan, which guides the use
of federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Stakeholders are also invited to take an on-line community survey, which will help administrators ensure that federal funding is directed toward critical needs identified by the community, including affordable housing, economic development or infrastructure improvements. The survey can be found at www.cityofrochester.gov/cdbgsurvey.
Federal funding sources in the Consolidated Plan include: Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) and Housing for Persons with Aids (HOPWA) funds.
The meeting schedule is:
* Southwest: 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, January 14, Southwest Neighborhood Service Center, 923 Genesee Street.
* Northeast: 10 a.m. Tuesday, January 20, Northeast Neighborhood Service Center, 500 Norton Street.
