Residents Invited to Submit Comments on Community Development Needs

The Salt Lake City Housing and Neighborhood Development Division (HAND) invites residents to participate in a General Needs Hearing to gather public comments on overall housing and community development needs as they relate to low and moderate-income Salt Lake City residents.

Each year Salt Lake City receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) grant funds. For the 2020-21 program year HAND anticipates receiving approximately $6 million that may be used to support programs and projects throughout the city. Information gathered at this public hearing and other community engagement events will be used to prioritize funding to address eligible community needs during the 2020-21 program year.

Community needs may include projects such as:
