Town of Babylon Survey
The Town of Babylon has begun the planning process on the following documents:

1. The 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan;
2. The 2020 Annual Action Plan; and
3. The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice.

Each of these documents are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and are related to the local receipt of federal funds through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Program. The purposes of these plans are to identify the Town of Babylon's needs related to housing, economic/community development, homeless persons, public facilities, and identification of fair housing barriers within the Town. A key component of this process involves hearing from members of the public on issues of community needs, fair housing, and housing choice. The questions on the following pages are intended to serve these purposes.

Your responses will be kept strictly confidential. We will only report this information in combination with the other survey responses and in summary forma to protect your privacy. Please do not place your name or other identifying information anywhere on the survey. You may discontinue your participation at any time without loss of benefits otherwise afforded to you. If you have questions about the use of survey information, or about this survey in general, please call the Town of Babylon's Department of Community Development at (631) 587-3752 x6011.
