The City of Columbia Community Development Department is accepting FY 2015 CDBG and HOME applications through April 30, 2014, at 5:00 p.m. The Community Development Commission will be rating applications and providing funding recommendations to the City Council as part of the annual funding process. Applicants are encouraged to review the document outlining preliminary 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan needs identified through the City's recent Neighborhood Congress and Consolidated Plan Focus Groups on the City's website at http://tinyurl.com/opha6fr. You may also obtain a copy of the document by calling 573.874.6321 or visiting the Community Development Department office in City Hall, 701 E. Broadway.
The Consolidated Plan is a document required by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), designed to help guide communities on directing the federal dollars they receive. The consolidated planning process allows the public to identify the most important community needs in Columbia.
