Each year the City of Columbia receives federal funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) due to its population, demographics and available funding. The City estimates it will receive approximately $800,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and $400,000 in HOME funds each of the next 5 years. These funds primarily benefit low to moderate income households, and can be used for economic development, fair housing, community facilities, neighborhood needs, and affordable housing.

This survey is designed to collect public obligation regarding how the City should use funding in the area of Economic Development. This survey is voluntary, your answers will be kept confidential, and you may choose not to answer any question. Please do not take this survey again if you have already completed it. Thank you for providing your valuable input!
