The City of Tampa Housing and Community Development Division (HCD) invites the public to provide input on housing and community development needs in the City by completing an online survey.

HCD is preparing its FY 2017-2021 Consolidated Plan and FY 2017-2018 Action Plan. The Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan identifies strategies to address the housing and community development needs of primarily low-and moderate-income persons including the provision of affordable housing, public facilities, infrastructure, public services, and facilities and services for homeless and special need persons. The City will utilize Federal Funds received annually from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to address the priority needs identified as a result of the Consolidated Planning process.

HCD is looking for resident and stakeholder input to help determine the strategies for the next five years. The survey is available in both English and Spanish and can be completed online through the HCD website: http://www.tampagov.net/housing-and-community-development or by selecting one of the following links:

The public will have additional opportunities to participate in the development of the Consolidated Plan including public meetings, stakeholder forums, and a public hearing on the proposed plan.
