The DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) receives federal funding for policies and programs in: (1) affordable housing; (2) special needs housing; (3) homelessness; (4) homeownership; and (5) community development and public service activities. Each fiscal year, it develops an "Action Plan" on the best uses of federal resources and as part of that process seeks public input.
DHCD is now developing its Fiscal Year 2019 Action Plan and as a first step is holding a needs assessment hearing.
Residents and stakeholders are strongly encouraged to provide input in the development of the five program areas listed above as well as feedback on innovative strategies to enhance community participation.
Individuals who would like to present oral testimony are encouraged to register in advance. Please provide your name, address, telephone number, and organization affiliation, if any.
Written statements may be submitted for the record at the hearing, or until close of business, Friday, August 3, 2018. Mail written statements to: Polly Donaldson, Director, DHCD, 1800 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20020
