Prior to budget discussions, the City of Raleigh is hosting a public hearing Dec. 5 on housing and community development needs, starting at 7 p.m.
Each year, the City of Raleigh receives funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These federal dollars include the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).
The city uses these programs to address the needs of low- and moderate-income persons.
Eligible uses for these funds include:
- Homelessness support;
- Affordable rental unit development;
- Housing rehabilitation; and
- Homebuyer assistance.
The December 5 public hearing is an opportunity for staff to hear input on the local housing and community development needs and feedback will be used to draft the FY24-25 annual action plan. A second public hearing will be held in April 2024 to receive public comment on the draft action plan.
Sign up to speak at the public hearing by Dec. 4 at 5 p.m. using this link.
