The City of Frederick receives an annual allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the U. S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). CDBG funds are intended to create viable communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities for low-and moderate-income residents. In previous years, the City has granted CDBG funds for single family rehabilitation loan programs, direct homeownership assistance, public facilities, transitional shelter, group home rehabilitation and to agencies providing public services to residents of The City of Frederick.

To receive funding from HUD, the City must develop a Consolidated Plan that identifies priorities and objectives for addressing the community’s needs over the next five years (2015-2019). As part of this process, the City is conducting a survey to identify citizen needs in the community and fair housing concerns. Fair Housing concerns include any act of discrimination or barrier that might limit the housing choices of families and individuals. In order for the City to address housing needs of its citizens, we request your assistance. The City annually receives approximately $350,000 and we would like to hear from you on how to best use these funds. Please take a few minutes and complete this survey. If you are unsure of an answer, or the question does not apply to you, please skip that question. Thank you for your help in identifying citizen needs and Fair Housing issues in The City of Frederick. Should you have any questions, please contact: Eileen Barnhard, CDBG Program Administrator at 301-600-2842.

Printed copies of the survey are available at City Hall 101 N. Court St. or the Municipal Office Annex 140 W. Patrick Street Frederick, MD 21701. Completed surveys can be submitted online, in person, email: or fax to 301-600-1837.
