Important DHCD community input events

The Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is convening four community needs assessment hearings in February and March.   The purpose is to hear about resident's housing needs so the agency can prepare the draft "Consolidated Plan for the District of Columbia Fiscal Year 2012 Action Plan" and the spending priorities utilizing federal entitlement funds.

The hearings are scheduled for February 23, February 24 (focus on "special needs housing" such as that for housing needs for the homeless, persons with disabilities, and persons living with HIV/AIDS), March 1, and March 10.

Those who want to testify should register in advance via email or by calling 442-6993.   Provide your name, address, telephone number, and organization affiliation, if any.
