Hamilton County is preparing its 2020-2024 5-Year Consolidated Plan and 2020 Annual Action Plan. These plans are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in order for the County to receive federal funds through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs. The plans address needs related to housing, economic and community development, and homelessness in Hamilton County. We want to hear from community leadership and County residents to identify priorities for using these funds. Your input will help inform which projects and programs receive priority funding over the next five years. All projects and programs benefit low to moderate income persons.
