An online community needs survey is also available here.

The city is preparing a new five-year Consolidated Plan to identify community needs and priorities that will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

HUD provides federal funds to invest in local communities, and the Consolidated Plan will guide distribution of the HUD funds over fiscal years 2020-2024, the city said Monday.

“Understanding the communities’ priorities is critical to ensure San Diego is leveraging federal funds for the maximum possible benefit,” said Economic Development Director Erik Caldwell.

Federal Entitlement Grants under consideration include the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program, HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Program.
