Public Hearing for Community Needs and Priorities - PY 2021-2022

Each year the City of Grants Pass receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to be used for projects which predominately benefit low- to moderate income persons, prevent/eliminate blight, or meet urgent community needs which pose a serious threat to the health, safety and welfare of the citizens.

Every fifth year the City adopts a 5-Year Consolidated Plan which guides use of the CDBG funds over the next five years. Each year the City prepares a 1-Year Action Plan to allocate annual grant funds for specific activities to address identified needs.

The City of Grants Pass is beginning the annual process for developing and adopting the 2021-2022 Year 2 Annual Action Plan to fund activities and projects to address the priorities identified in the 2020-2024 5-Year Consolidated Plan. This process follows timelines specified in the City's Citizen Participation Plan and federal law.

The City Council held a public hearing on the Community Needs and Priorities on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 6:00 pm considering the comments/suggestions from the results of the Survey posted on February 8, 2021 for those activities the public felt were most in need within the community. The suggestions and comments are incorporated into the 2021-2022 Year 2 Annual Action Plan.

Normally the City would hold a public meeting Open House/Workshop where the public would attend and put forth their ideas and suggestions of the Needs and Priorities of the community. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no public meeting will be held this year. As last year, the City has prepared a Survey to complete to ascertain the community needs and priorities. These ideas and suggestions will help develop the 2021-2022 Year 2 Annual Action Plan.

Please take some time to fill out the Survey. We will consider all ideas, suggestions for the 2021-2022 Year 2 Annual Action Plan. The City appreciates your time and input. 

Deadline for completing Survey is April 9, 2021.
