The Spokane County Community Services, Housing, and Community Development (CSHCD) Department is accepting requests for amendments to the Spokane County 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan. All citizens, including low and moderate-income persons, persons living in low and moderate-income neighborhoods, minority populations, non-English speaking persons, persons with disabilities, persons with HIV/AIDS and their families, homeless persons and residents of public and assisted housing developments are encouraged to participate.
This is an annual opportunity for the community to suggest amendments to Spokane County’s 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan’s Priority Needs for public services, economic development, public facilities, infrastructure, and housing, as well as the Spokane County’s planning documents and activities for the Community Development Block Grant and HOME Partnership Funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Consolidated Plan’s Priority Needs determine how and where resources are allocated and establish funding priorities during the five-year planning process.
There is a specific process for requesting an amendment to the Consolidated Plan. To be considered, written requests for amendments are due by March 7, 2019. Amendment requests received after March 7, 2019, will be considered during the amendment process in 2020. Information regarding Housing and Community Development Division projects and activities, including details for requesting amendments to Consolidated and Annual Action Plans, is available on our website at https://www.spokanecounty.org/1243/Department-Documents.
