Since 1978, the City of Royal Oak has received Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The primary objectives of the CDBG program are to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment and expand economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons and neighborhoods.
CDBG rules require the city to develop a consolidated plan every five years. HUD requires the city to consult with interested parties including residents, agencies, groups, organizations, income-eligible persons, and other interested parties. We need your input to help us establish our program priorities for the next five years.
The City of Royal Oak is required provide a concise summary of the nature and extent of housing, non-housing, and community develop needs as defined by HUD. Your responses to the following survey help the city prepare summaries and describe strategies for addressing those issues during the next five years. CDBG funding is limited and not all activities are eligible under the CDBG program. However, the needs allow the city to seek other funding sources and work with outside agencies to address these needs.
Questions regarding the CDBG program may be directed to Joseph Murphy, Director of Planning, 203 S. Troy St., Royal Oak MI 48067 P (248) 246-3285 E firstname.lastname@example.org
