The City of Pawtucket is seeking help to identify needs for low-income families, households and neighborhoods. The City of Pawtucket, Department of Planning and Redevelopment (DPR) is asking residents, business owners and customers to help identify the needs and priorities for the expenditure of federal funds. Per the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regulations, DPR must conduct a needs assessment by soliciting the opinions of the City’s residents, business owners, service providers, public officials and the general public.
The results of the survey will be used to establish goals for both the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME programs. Funding priority is primarily based on community input gathered through the survey and planning process.
The survey results will be a tool used to develop the 2020-2025 Consolidated Plan, a strategic plan that prioritizes the expenditures of CDBG and HOME funds that DPR administers on behalf of HUD. As a direct result of surveys received, goals and priorities are set to establish what type of projects can be funded for the next five years.
We hope that you will take advantage of the opportunity to take part in this important research effort. Your survey responses will remain anonymous and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Thank you for your time and participation
