City of Sioux Falls to Host Public Hearings on Affordable Housing

The City of Sioux Falls Affordable Housing Division will hold two public hearings on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, at 2:30 and 5:30 p.m. in the Siouxland Libraries Downtown Library at 200 North Dakota Avenue. The purpose of each hearing is to obtain comments from residents, agencies, and other interested parties on unmet housing and community needs in Sioux Falls. This input will be used in the development of the City’s priorities for the 2019 Annual Action Plan, which will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on or before November 15, 2018.

The plan will identify the sources and uses of funds from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME). It is estimated that in 2019 the City will receive approximately $966,000 of CDBG funds and $526,000 of HOME funds from HUD. The City also expects to receive approximately $498,477 from the CDBG program income and $186,545 from the HOME Program income. These funds will be used to address the needs of the low-income members of our community.

People of low and moderate income, people who are homeless, racial and ethnic minorities, people of limited English proficiency, people with disabilities, and entities that provide services to these populations are specifically encouraged to attend.
