City conducting survey on CDBG funding priorities
For the second year in a row, the City of Great Falls is conducting a Community Grant Survey to gather feedback from residents on how the city should spend its annual allocation of Community Development Block Grant funds.
Results from the survey will be published on the city’s website and will be used to establish funding priorities and goals to be included in the City’s Annual Action Plan, which outlines the allocation of CDBG funds for the upcoming Fiscal Year 2019/2020.
Paper copies of the survey are available at the Planning and Community Development office located in Room 112 of the Civic Center. This year’s survey can also be completed online via https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/M8XMHR7. The survey will close Feb. 18.
The City’s CDBG program is operated by the Planning and Community Development Department and is designed to meet low-income housing and community development needs. CDBG funding is provided annually through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the amount of funds received by the City is determined by a formula set by the federal government. The City Commission prioritizes the allocation of CDBG funds annually based on community need.
