Housing Community Outreach

We need your input Visalia!

We are seeking public input on three topics:

  1. How could federal funds could be spent to address community and
    housing needs?
  2. How can we further fair housing?
  3. How can we address housing needs with the General Plan's Housing Element?

Why is this important? We must identify the housing needs of the community to determine how to use these funds to achieve the most far reaching public benefit You are the Public! When you make your voice heard, you are helping City leaders prioritize spending for you, your family, and your community.

Why is community wide dialogue important?

Public community input workshops are necessary to have dialogue to identify affordable housing, housing needs among all economic and social segments, and homeless and community development priorities.

For grants, priorities should align with the objectives of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) programs. For the Housing Element, public outreach through these workshops is an effort to gain input from key stakeholders and members of the public to expand upon existing policies policies
