South Dakota Housing Development Authority (SDHDA), in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED), will be hosting a public meeting on Feb. 12, 2021, to solicit comments prior to the drafting of the 2021 Annual Action Plan.
The purpose of the public meeting is to obtain citizens’ views, answer questions and discuss housing and community development needs. Information gathered at the meeting will be utilized to establish goals and prioritize funding.
Annually the state of South Dakota receives approximately $12.5 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to support the development of viable communities by providing decent housing, suitable living environments and expanded economic opportunities to low- and moderate-income persons.
SDHDA and GOED annually prepare a planning document (Annual Action Plan) that outlines how the $12.5 million of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), Housing Trust Fund (HTF) and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) program funds will be allocated.
Persons interested are encouraged to attend the public meeting on Feb. 12, 2021 at 2 p.m. Central Time. The meeting will be available via Skype for Business. Be sure to download the application onto your device in plenty of time prior to joining the meeting.
