Residents invited to submit comments on prioritization of $5.5-million of Federal funding

The Salt Lake City Housing and Neighborhood Development Division (HAND) invites residents to participate in a General Needs Hearing to gather public comment 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 FY20 program year HAND anticipates receiving approximately $5.5 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 including: homeownership programs, affordable housing and rental assistance, transportation, parks/streets/sidewalk improvements, refugee services, day-to-day services for people experiencing homelessness, early childhood education, neighborhood improvements, and more.

Public input is vital to ensuring that we are able to prioritize these funds in a way that supports the needs of our community and creates lasting impact. We invite you to participate in the upcoming public hearing or submit comments via email.
