Purpose of Survey

The City of Columbia expects to receive funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to support the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) program which will help to address affordable housing and community development needs.  Program activities must meet at least one of three national objectives outlined by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Activities must benefit low-to-moderate income persons/households; prevent or eliminate slums or blight and/or an emergency need that poses a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community.
 
The survey should only take 5-10 minutes of your time and your input is important to us.  Your responses are completely anonymous.
