Help the city develop its five-year federal funding plan

Monday, February 11, 2019 by Tai Moses

Austin residents are invited to attend a public hearing of the city’s Community Development Commission to share their ideas for setting grant funding priorities for affordable housing, job creation and public service needs for low- and moderate-income families, seniors and people with disabilities. Public input will help the commission develop its FY 2019-23 federal funding plan for HUD grants. In its announcement, the city expressed hope that the process will “foster community partnerships, cultivate emerging leadership around affordable housing, and facilitate an ongoing dialogue to brainstorm opportunities.” The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 6:30 p.m., at the Neighborhood Housing and Community Development office in the Street-Jones Building, 1000 E. 11th St., Room 400A. Read more about the five-year funding plan.
