Public comments needed on use of federal housing funding

The public is encouraged to comment on the District's Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) Fiscal Year 2010 Consolidated Annual Action Plan for the District of Columbia.

The annual plan lays out the goals for the year, specifically about how DHCD will use federal entitlement program funding:   Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnerships, Emergency Shelter Grant, and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program.

DHCD also seeks public comment on the Five-Year Consolidated Plan
for Fiscal Years 2011-2015.   This plan identifies the policies and strategies to be used to address the housing and community development needs of low to moderate income residents.   Four public hearings are scheduled; details are here.   Additional information is available by contacting DHCD, dhcdevents [AT] dc [DOT] gov or (202) 442-7251.
