Community Input for 5 Year Plan

Community Development Logo

The City of Westfield, through its Office of Community Development, has issued a survey to solicit input from residents as it begins to prepare its Five-Year Consolidated Plan, which will dictate how the City allocates its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and federal HOME program funds from 2020 through 2024. 

The online survey has about ten questions and should take about five to ten minutes to fill out. It can be accessed at https://forms.gle/rPxxLCAmSChBxJxG8 or through a link from the City’s website. Hard copies will be made available at the Senior Center, the Greater Westfield Boys & Girls Club, and at the Westfield Athenaeum.

The US Department of Housing & Urban Development requires its entitlement communities to undertake an intensive outreach program every five years to ensure that cities are addressing needs specific to their community. The CDBG program was created by an Act of Congress in 1974 in order to provide a flexible source of federal funding to address the needs of low-and-moderate income households and neighborhoods.

In 2019, Westfield received a grant of $360,885 and allocated its funds to a range of programs, including the replacement of sidewalks on Washington Street, the Westfield Housing Improvement Program, the newly-created Microenterprise grant program, and a variety of public service agencies.

For questions relative to the program or survey, please contact Peter Miller at (413) 572-6240 or at p.miller@cityofwestfield.org. The survey will be available until December 20th.
