Surprise wants resident feedback on housing, development

Posted

The city of Surprise, in partnership with Maricopa HOME Consortium, is conducting a citizen needs assessment to collect feedback that will help in the development of the City’s Five-Year Consolidated Plan (2025-2029) and regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice.

The city is offering an online resident survey to give our community the opportunity to provide meaningful input on community development goals and affordable housing needs.

The survey is open now through Friday, Aug. 16.

The Maricopa HOME Consortium includes the cities of Avondale, Chandler, Glendale, Peoria, Scottsdale, Surprise, Tempe and Maricopa County. The consortium is committed to encouraging citizens to participate in the planning, implementation, and assessment of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funded programs.

This includes the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), which help to address affordable housing and community development needs. This funding must benefit low-to-moderate income persons/households, prevent or eliminate slums or blight and/or address an emergency need that poses a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community.

For information, contact the Surprise Human Service & Community Vitality Department’s Housing & Community Services Division at 623-222-1550
