Welcome

This survey consists of 20 questions and takes around 10 minutes to complete.  No identifying information is collected and all survey responses are anonymous.  The results of this survey will help determine funding priorities for the next five-year planning cycle (FY 2021-2025) for U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grants.  These results will be incorporated into Wayne County's Consolidated Plan, which will identify needs and goals for the County's community development programs.  Wayne County is the administrative lead for all of the non-entitlement communities (communities that do not receive HUD funds directly) in Wayne County.
