Homeless Needs Survey
CITY OF CLARKSVILLE
Please help the City of Clarksville develop its strategic plan for dealing with homeless needs in our community.
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT
HOMELESS NEEDS SURVEY
Since 1974, Clarksville has received Community Development Block Grant funding. The primary objectives of the CDBG program are to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment and expand economic opportunities, principally for low and moderate income persons and neighborhoods. CDBG rules require the City to develop a strategic plan every five years.
HUD encourages the lead agency to consult with interested parties including agencies, groups, organizations, income-eligible persons and other interested parties. We need your input to help us establish our program priorities for the next five years.
By participating in an on-line survey, you will help us meet the requirement to provide a concise summary of the City’s housing and develop our strategy for addressing those needs.
