The Community Development Commission will be holding a public hearing Wednesday, Jan 9th, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in Conference Room 1A of City Hall, 701 E. Broadway. The purpose of the hearing is to provide an opportunity for public input regarding the expenditure of CDBG and HOME funding.
Each year the City of Columbia receives federal funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) due to its population, demographics and available funding. The City estimates it will receive approximately $800,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and $463,000 in HOME funds for FY 2014. These funds must primarily benefit low-moderate income households, and can be used for public facility improvements, housing projects, public services, and economic development activities.
In addition to the public hearing, the City of Columbia Community Development Department is also conducting an annual survey regarding community development needs and expenditure of HUD funding. Surveys will be collected through March 29, 2013. The link to the online survey is: http://www.gocolumbiamo.com/CMS/WebForms/form.php?formid=151.
