Public input on homeless solutions to be sought July 30



A meeting to take public input on prevention assistance will be held on July 30 at City Hall.

The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has al­located funds to the City of Escondido for Fiscal Year (FY) 2016-2017 for an Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).

The main objective of ESG is to provide prevention assistance to individu­als and families who would otherwise become homeless and to provide as­sistance to rapidly re-house persons who are homeless and those who are at risk of becoming homeless.

In order to receive funding, the Submittal of the Substantial Amendment to the FY 2015-2019 Five Year Consolidated Plan and FY 2016-2017 Annual Action Plan is required by HUD.

Neighborhood Services Staff has begun the consultation and citizen par­ticipation process, and will host a public meeting to solicit further input from the community on Thursday, July 30, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. For more information about this public meeting, visit www.escondido.org/neighborhood-services.aspx.

Neighborhood Services is responsible for administration of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) public service programs and projects.

The division also manages capital projects related to neighborhood improve­ments and acts as the primary liaison between the City, neighborhood orga­nizations, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
