Help Austin Set Federal Funding Priorities By Taking Quick Online Survey
The City of Austin is asking residents to fill out a two-minute online survey and to share their thoughts about priorities for addressing affordable housing, job creation, and public service needs for low- and moderate-income families, persons with disabilities, and seniors.
The survey is available in both English and Spanish, and asks Austinites to rank their community priorities, identify areas of need, and even offer their own suggestions of needs and potential programming.
Managed by the Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Department (NHCD), the survey will help decide where to spend nearly $13 million in annual grant funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the next five years. Vulnerable communities and populations are especially encouraged to participate.
Five years is a long time. We must be sure that our residents—all our residents—have a say about where the money for public services and programs are going.
