Organizations/Business Consultation: Community Needs Assessment
The City of Mansfield is in the process of developing a new Consolidated Plan for the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership Funds (HOME) through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Plan will cover the 2019-2023 period and will identify the City's priorities for allocating these federal grant funds for the next five years. Preparation of the Plan is guided by the regulations and requirements contained in the Code of Federal Regulations 24 CFR Part 91.
