Modesto Housing Division launches online survey

Modesto Housing Division launches online survey

MODESTO - Each year, the City of Modesto receives funding from the federal government for community development as well as emergency shelter and housing activities. In order to set spending priorities, the city's Housing Division prepares a five year plan that is updated every year to identify the housing and community development needs and develop a strategy for addressing those needs in a given fiscal year.

The city anticipates receiving approximately $3 million in funding for Fiscal Year 2011-12 and wants to provide the community with an opportunity to assist with identifying housing and community development needs in Modesto.
