[ARCHIVED] Public Feedback Needed for HOME ARP Spending Plan

In-person and virtual information session on August 3

NORFOLK, VA – Through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded the City of Norfolk $4,517,686 for the HOME Investment Partnership American Rescue Plan (HOME ARP) Program to provide housing, support services and shelter to individuals experiencing homelessness, at risk of homelessness, and other vulnerable populations.

To determine effective funding allocation, Norfolk’s Department of Housing and Community Development is seeking public comment and feedback at a presentation and information session on Wednesday, August 3, at 2:00 p.m. at City Hall (810 Union Street, Norfolk, VA 23510) in the 6th floor conference room. The purpose of this session is to provide information on eligible activities, qualifying populations and other program-specific requirements. There will also be an opportunity to identify priority funding needs.

The public is invited to attend in-person or virtually. Details on virtual meeting access can be found here.

Public participation plays an important role in identifying community priorities. Information collected during this meeting will be used to prepare the City’s HOME ARP Allocation Plan.

If disabled, hearing-impaired and non-English speakers require assistance, contact the Department of Housing and Community Development or call (757) 664-2467 to request accommodations as soon as possible.
