City of Charlotte Seeks Public Input to Determine the Need and Distribution of FY12 Federal Housing Funds
(Charlotte, N.C.) -- The City of Charlotte is preparing submission of the FY12 Annual Action Plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and is asking for public participation in its preparation at two Public Forums taking place on February 2nd and 3rd.
The Annual Action Plan is the City of Charlotte’s application to receive federal funds for the following grants: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnership Act (HOME), Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA). The Action Plan reports on the status of community needs and outcomes expected to be achieved in FY-2012 (July 1, 2011 - June 30, 2012) and will address housing, economic development and community development issues.
The City of Charlotte encourages citizens to become involved in the development of the Annual Action Plan. Join the City at a Public Forum to discover how funds are being spent and offer suggestions for new programs or projects. Your participation in the planning process will help ensure that the needs of Charlotte’s citizens are heard and federal resources are allocated to meet the needs of the community.
If you are unable to attend a public forum and wish to make comments, please contact:
