In fiscal 2011-12, the City anticipates potential reductions to federal funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). To receive these HUD grants, cities must submit an annual action plan to HUD with community needs, resources, priorities and proposed activities for housing, community development, economic development and public services.
The focus of this forum is to understand your priorities for funding in this area--the areas where you think the Neighborhood Housing and Communtiy Development Office (NHCD) should focus their resources.
