City of Columbia - Community Development Needs Survey 2017
Each year the City of Columbia 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 $830,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and $400,000 in HOME funds in FY 2017. These funds primarily benefit low to moderate income households, and can be used for economic development, fair housing, community facilities, neighborhood needs, and affordable housing.

This survey is designed to collect public opinion regarding the City's use of funding among the five different program areas. This survey is voluntary, your answers will be kept confidential, and you may choose not to answer any question. Please do not take this survey again if you have already completed it. Thank you for providing your valuable input!
