The Gainesville Housing and Community Development Department is creating a long-term Housing Action Plan and we need input from our neighbors. Help us determine our most pressing housing needs and prioritize strategies to address the housing challenges specific to Gainesville.

This brief survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete and will be kept completely anonymous. Community input is critical to this process and will help ensure we can build strong neighborhoods while focusing on inclusive development and community preservation.

For questions about this survey or accommodations for persons with disabilities or limited English proficiency, please contact Helen Harris, City of Gainesville Housing and Community Development, at: (352) 393-8624 or by email at: harrishj@cityofgainesville.org.
