Norristown Five-Year Consolidated Plan Community Survey
Since 1986, Norristown has received Community Development Block Grant (CBDG) funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The primary objectives of the CDBG program are to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment and expand economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons and neighborhoods.
HUD requires the Municipality to develop a Consolidated Plan every five years to guide the programming of CDBG funds. HUD encourages towns to consult with interested parties including agencies, groups, organizations, income-eligible persons and other interested parties. The Consolidated Plan will describe the Municipality’s housing needs, non-housing community development needs and homelessness needs. Your responses to the following survey will help us prepare those summaries and describe our strategies for addressing those issues during the next five years.
In addition to the Consolidated Plan, the Municipality is also preparing an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI). The goal of the AI is to collect data to determine the current state of Fair Housing compliance, identify any impediments to Fair Housing, and make recommendations to address those impediments. The Federal Fair Housing Act makes it illegal to discriminate in housing because of race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, disability/handicap, family status, etc.
This is an anonymous survey. Responses will be summarized and individual responses will not be shared. Please complete this survey only once. The survey will remain open until February 15, 2020. Please forward a link to this survey to anyone else that you feel would be interested in participating.
