City Of Mansfield Seeks Public Input On Priorities And Needs

9 Jan , 2019  

The City of Mansfield is in the process of developing a new Consolidated Plan for the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership Funds (HOME) through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Plan will cover the 2019-2023 period and will identify the City’s priorities for allocating these federal grant funds for the next five years.

To that end, the City has created an online survey to gain citizens’ opinions on neighborhood and city needs. Another survey will obtain input from agencies, business, investors, and organizations.

The survey can be accessed and responded to at this online location.
