Housing Affordability and Community Services
THE GOAL OF THE HOUSING AFFORDABILITY & COMMUNITY SERVICES COMMITTEE IS TO DEVELOP A DRAFT STRATEGIC PLAN TO IMPROVE HOUSING AFFORDABILITY AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS ON BUDGET AND CDBG (COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT) ALLOCATIONS FOR SOCIAL SERVICES.
ON APRIL 21, 2016 @ 1:30 P.M., THE HOUSING AFFORDABILITY & COMMUNITY SERVICES COMMITTEE HOSTED A SYMPOSIUM OF COMMUNITY LEADERS IN ISSUES REGARDING AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND THE GAP IN SERVICES TO THE LOW INCOME POPULATION OF ANACORTES.
The Symposium produced a great amount of information on the services that are available and identified many of the gaps and inefficiencies to access services. The Committee is currently working on an outline as guidance for establishing services and removing barriers that prevent families and individuals from moving out of low income and homeless situations. The outcome of this work will create a strategic plan to help end the problems afflicting too many within our community. We will keep you posted as the work progresses. The work to date on the Strategic Plan is available below.
