City seeks public input on plan for housing and other community needs

The City of Albany wants the public to have a say in proposals that address Albany’s housing and community development needs in 2018 as well as a strategic plan for the next five years.

The City receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to address housing, community, and economic development needs primarily for Albany’s for low- and moderate-income and special needs residents. 

Citizen participation is important in helping the city identify priorities and plan for how CDBG funds will be spent from 2018 to 2022.  How can you help?
