Housing & Neighborhood Services Plans Available For Review

The City’s five-year and one-year plans for investing Federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) dollars are now available for review.

All HUD dollars must be used to improve the quality of life for low- to moderate-income residents. Both the 2016-2020 Consolidated Plan and the 2016 Annual Action Plan identify needs that are not currently being met in the community and possible ways to meet those needs. Goals in the plans touch on issues related to: access to rental housing, housing development, purchase and/or rehabilitation of houses, homelessness, self-sufficiency, services for low-income families, public services, and public facilities and improvements.

Draft copies of the plans are available for review online at ohns or mail their comments to Attn: Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan, Citizens Square, 200 E. Berry St., Suite 320, Fort Wayne, IN 46802.

Input received from the public will be included in the final plans that the City submits to HUD.
