The City of Moorhead has prepared a draft version of the 2018 Annual Action Plan and Citizen Participation Plan
for Housing and Community Development for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. The priorities established within the draft plan result from citizen participation in the development of the 2015-2019 5-Year Plan
, an August 9, 2017 community meeting, and additional community outreach. Tools included a community survey (5-Year Plan), consultations with area agencies identifying assets and needs, and analysis of Census and other statistical data. Activities identified in the proposed plan include: home rehabilitation including energy efficiency improvements, public housing rental rehabilitation, accessibility improvements, transportation opportunities to address homelessness prevention, housing education for homebuyers, and opportunities for children and youth. The City’s 5-Year priorities include affordable housing, activities to end homelessness, assist special needs populations, and address non-housing community development needs.
