Hamilton County Community Development Program Survey
Hamilton County is preparing its next 5-Year Consolidated Plan as required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The Plan will cover the years 2020 through 2024. The County receives about $5 million annually through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs.

These funds are used to address affordable housing needs, plan and implement economic and community development projects, and to address the needs of people experiencing homelessness in the County. The City of Cincinnati receives their own grants for these programs, so the County’s funds are used in the 41 local governments participating outside of the City, including Springfield Township.

One very important part of the planning process is hearing from residents, businesses and leaders in the villages, cities and townships throughout the County. The County is asking for your thoughts about how to make your community and the County as a whole better and how you would prioritize the investment of these grant funds. Your comments on the survey will help inform which projects and programs receive priority funding over the next five years.

Your answers to the survey are confidential. They are not asking for names or contact information and survey results will be provided in a summary format.

If you have questions about the survey or plans, please contact staff at Hamilton County Community Development at (513) 946-8230.
