Spokane County residents asked to participate in community needs survey

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE COUTNY, Wash. - The department of Community Services, Housing and Community Development is asking Spokane County residents to take a few minutes and complete a Community Needs Survey by the end of August. 

The completed surveys will be tabulated and the results used in the Consolidated Planning Process for 2010-2015. 

The Consolidated Plan outlines how millions of dollars in state and federal grants will be allocated over the next five years.  

Spokane County has invested approximately $2.4 million annually in HUD Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership Program funding across our region. 

These dollars have been used to create jobs, build new and acquire existing housing, build water lines, improve parks and feed families. How money is allocated to wide variety of projects and services is outlined in the five-year Consolidated Plan, which is based on the results of the Community Needs Survey.   

These funds are allocated to projects and services that address priority needs identified in the participating cities/towns and unincorporated areas of Spokane County, principally to benefit low- to-moderate income families and individuals.

Community Services, Housing, and Community Development Department, its Advisory Committee, and the Spokane Board of County Commissioners urge the public to take a few minutes and complete the Community Needs Survey.  In this way, citizens will have a voice in determining what type of projects and services should be funded in the coming years through CDBG and HOME funded activities. 

The Community Needs Survey takes approximately five minutes to complete and available at www.spokanecounty.org/communitysvcs/HCD/content.aspx?c=2216
