Residents Encouraged to Participate in Annual Survey
The City of Santa Clarita’s annual Community Needs Assessment survey is now available and residents are encouraged to share their opinions. The Community Needs Assessment, which is used to determine how to best allocate Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding, is available online from November 10 through December 22, 2017, at www.santa-clarita.com/Housing.
Each year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development provides the City of Santa Clarita Community Development Block Grant funding to benefit lower-income residents. The City’s Community Needs Assessment allows residents to weigh in on how funding should be distributed to housing, supportive services, community facilities and infrastructure, and economic opportunities.
Some of the key results of last year’s Community Needs Assessment are:
• Supportive Human Services – Youth Activities, Anti-Crime Programs and Mental Health Services
• Community Facilities and Infrastructure – Homeless Shelters, Youth Centers, Parks and Recreational Facilities
• Housing – Affordable Rental Housing, Energy Efficient Improvements and Senior Rental Housing
• Economic Opportunities – Job Creation/Retention, Employment Training and Start-up Business Assistance
For more information on the Community Development Block Grant Program or the Community Needs Assessment survey, contact Terasa Sullivan, Project Technician for the City of Santa Clarita, at 661-255-4368. The survey is available on the City’s website at www.santa-clarita.com/Housing.
