Public Input Sought on Affordable Housing and Community Development Needs
Snohomish County announces a public hearing related to the planning process for federal affordable housing and community development funds


EVERETT, Wash., November 23, 2020 - Snohomish County invites all interested persons to provide input on local community needs for affordable housing, public facility, infrastructure, services and economic development projects to be funded with 2021 federal grant funds and to provide input on 2019 grant performance.


Snohomish County, in consortium with 19 cities and towns within the County, receives approximately $5 million in federal funds each year under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs.  The grant funds help support local affordable housing, public facility, infrastructure, services, and economic development projects that benefit low-to-moderate income persons and neighborhoods in Snohomish County.


The use of these grant funds is guided by a five-year 2020-2024 plan, which establishes goals based on community needs. Each year, Snohomish County, as lead agency of the consortium, is required to develop an Action Plan for use of these funds.  The 2021 Action Plan will cover the period between July 1, 2021, and June 30, 2022.


The Virtual Public Hearing is scheduled for Thursday, December 10th, 2020, at 9:00 a.m.
