Millions of Dollars in Federal Funds Were Spent on You ... Share Your Thoughts

The City of Houston's Housing and Community Development Department (HCDD) invites you to two public hearings seeking citizen input on how millions of dollars in Federal Housing and Urban Development funds were spent over the past year.

These funds are received annually and are used to provide services for low- to moderate-income Houstonians. Over the past year, they have beenĀ used to support affordable housing, single-family home repair, community development, economic development, neighborhood facility improvements and parks, as well as programs serving youth, the homeless, persons living with AIDS and people with special needs.

Take a moment to review HCDD's Annual Report (more information below), and attend either public hearing to share your input about how these federal funds are being spent in your community. Each hearing will include a brief overview of the programs and activities supported by these Federal funds.

The public hearings will be held on:

Tuesday, November 1, 2011
7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Southwest Multi-Service Center
