Fulton County Wants Citizen Input on Community Development Plan and Fair Housing Study

Fulton County is beginning development of a five-year plan that identifies community development, affordable housing, and homeless needs, and sets priorities for investment of federal grant funds to address them. A second study – a fair housing analysis – will identify barriers to equal access to housing and will propose fair and affordable housing strategies to overcome those obstacles. These plans are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the County to receive federal money through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership, and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs.

Hearing the opinions and perceptions of local residents is an important part of developing these plans, and the public is invited to provide input at three community meetings and through a survey. Meetings will be held at the following dates, times, and locations, and are open to anyone. Refreshments will be served and children are welcome at all workshops.
