Kelly Keenan, Community, Housing and Human Services Department

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at 5:05 p.m.

In 2015 the Community, Housing and Human Services Department (CHHS) published the City of Spokane Consolidated Plan for Community Development 2015-2020. The Consolidated Plan process serves as the framework for community-wide dialogue to establish housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program, and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program.  The Consolidated Plan was developed through extensive community collaboration, including consultation with nearly 45 community organizations/agencies, and is carried out through Annual Action Plans.

The 2017 Annual Action Plan provides an overview of actions, activities, and specific resources that will be used in the 2017 Program Year to address the priority needs and goals set by the 2015-2020 Consolidated Plan.  These needs include; safe affordable housing, preventing and reducing homelessness, opportunities to improve quality of life, supporting vibrant neighborhoods, and expanding economic opportunities.

Wednesday, March 1, 2017 CHHS staff and the CHHS Board will be hosting a public hearing to provide information and invite public comment on the 2017 Annual Action Plan draft. The hearing is from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the City Council Briefing Center in City Hall.

If you are unable to attend, the draft 2017 Annual Action Plan can be found on the City’s website. Comments can be provided by phone, 509.625.6325, by email at spokanechhs@spokanecity.org, or by mail to the following address:

Community, Housing and Human Services Department
808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd.
Spokane, WA 99201
