Community Development Needs Survey
Each year the City of Panama City receives federal funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) due to its population, demographics, and available funding. The City estimates it will receive approximately $375,500 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) each year of the next 5 years. These funds primarily benefit low to moderate income households, and can be used for affordable housing, economic development, community facilities and neighborhood infrastructure.

This survey is designed to collect public opinion regarding how the City should use funding in the area of Affordable Housing. This survey is voluntary, your answers will be kept confidential.

Please do not take this survey again if you have already completed it.
