Good afternoon NSD partners,
I’d like to extend my appreciation of your outreach efforts
in support of the City’s 2020-24 Consolidated Plan.
The Your City, Your
Voice campaign focused on getting our residents and stakeholders to complete
the survey or attend a community engagement session to provide input to help
the City define housing and community needs for the next five years. The
overwhelming amount of support each of our partners provided, resulted in over
2,000 survey responses and over 80 attendees at our engagement sessions,
exceeding previous participation levels.
Every five years, the city of Phoenix partners with the community to develop a strategic Consolidated Plan.
The plan defines strategies to address housing, community development needs, and current market conditions in order for the city of Phoenix to make informed decisions on an estimated $130 million in HUD grant funding. Grants include the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnership (HOME), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).
This plan outlines how the city will invest nearly $130 million in federal funds to strengthen communities and enhance neighborhoods!
Grant money from the four main HUD programs fund services within Phoenix's Housing Department, Human Services Department and Neighborhood Services Department.
Thank you for taking the time to invest in this very
important process. We look forward to sharing with everyone the results of our
