Community Development Division seeks public input for Community Development Block Grant program

The City of Rochester’s Community Development Division has released its 2023-2024 Community Development survey to gather public feedback and opinions on potential funding activities for the City’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.

The surveys can be found at the City Clerk’s Office, the Welfare Office at City Hall, the Tax and Auto Registration Office and Recreation Department at the James W. Foley Memorial Community Center, Rochester Ice Arena, as well as the Rochester Public Library. The survey is also available online at https://forms.microsoft.com/g/yksQREtzvi.

The survey will be available until January 19, 2024.

The City of Rochester receives federal grant funding through the Community Development Block Grants program, which is administered through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), to provide services and fund projects designed to serve lower-income residents. As part of this funding process, the City must submit an annual action plan that outlines proposed activities and funding for the upcoming plan year. The 2024-2025 action plan will be developed with input from members of the public, City officials, and community stakeholders such as non-profits providing services to City residents and local businesses.

Public input is welcome and encouraged through the entire planning process for the 2024-2025 action plan.

Comments and concerns can be submitted to the Community Development Coordinator, Kiersten “Kay” Wright at kay.wright@rochesternh.gov or (603) 335-7519.
