We apologize for the short notice on these meetings. We did not receive the information until Monday of this week.
Community Development Hearings
The City of Detroit needs your input regarding federal funds received for four programs administered by the Planning and Development Department. During November, residents are encouraged to attend one of the seven district hearings to provide comments on how these funds should be spent in your community.
On average, the City of Detroit applies for and receives $40 million per year in U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funding for four programs. The four HUD programs are:
• Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
• HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME)
• Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG)
• Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA)
In addition, the City of Detroit is also developing Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Areas (NRSAs). Communities with approved NRSAs are offered en- hanced flexibility in undertaking economic development, housing, and public service activities with CDBG funds.
These programs require citizen participation. That’s You!
HOW TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Make your voice heard regarding how these funds can be used each year in your community by coming out to a District meeting. All relevant comments and opinions will become part of a report submitted to HUD. Your comments will also be presented to the Mayor and City Council. District meeting information is shown on the back of this page.
