Help Santee Prioritize Federal Grant Funds

Wednesday, January 7, 2015


Help us establish priorities for allocating funds from two federal grant programs by attending a public meeting  on Monday, Jan. 12 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Santee City Hall Complex, Building 8A.

Volunteer Debbie Nash at Santee Food Bank

The city needs public input to establish a 5-year plan for using  the federal funds, which are aimed at helping low and moderate income households in Santee.

The plan is intended to provide policy guidance on distributing funds from the federal Community Development Block Grant and Home Investment Partnership programs.

Block grant funds support activities ranging from affordable housing to infrastructure, public improvements, economic development  or other activities that benefit low - and moderate-income households.  Nonprofit groups such as the Santee Food Bank have received portions of this funding.

Home Investment Partnership funds are used to acquire or rehabilitate single- or multi-family dwellings, and for tenant assistance programs.

The city wants to identify specific needs, priorities and strategies to address affordable housing, homeless and special needs, as well as community and neighborhood revitalization over the next five years (2015-2019).

You can also participate by submitting written comments to the City of Santee, Department of Development Services, 10601 Magnolia Avenue, Santee,  CA 92071.

The public is also invited to complete a brief online survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CNHB5BV
