The City of Santa Clarita is encouraging residents, local business owners and stakeholders to attend a Community Needs Assessment meeting Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 7 p.m. in the City Hall Century Room, located at 23920 Valencia Blvd.
The meeting will discuss the needs of lower-income residents in the areas of affordable housing, infrastructure, supportive services, and economic development.
Each year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development provides funding to the City of Santa Clarita to benefit lower-income residents through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The information gathered at the meeting will be used to help determine how funds will be allocated in Fiscal Year 2012-2013 to meet priorities established in a strategic planning document called the Consolidated Plan.
Residents may also provide input regarding CDBG funded programs by participating in an 18 question Community Needs Assessment survey available online at surveymonkey.com/s/PBLCGWB now through February 1, 2012.
For more information on the Community Development Block Grant Program or the Community Needs Assessment Meeting, contact Community Development Project Technician Terasa Sullivan at (661) 255-4368 or visit the Affordable Housing webpage.
