[Duluth, MN] - Each year the City of Duluth Community Development Office receives federal funding to assist low income persons and neighborhoods; improve housing, public services, and public facilities; and promote economic development.
City leaders are turning to the community to help direct how these funds should be distributed. The City’s Community Development Office plans to develop a 5-year Consolidated Plan that will identify community needs and set priorities.
The public is encouraged to participate in the 2014 Community Needs Survey by visiting the Community Development webpage at http://www.duluthmn.gov/community-development and clicking on the “TAKE THE SURVEY” link.
The survey takes five minutes and will serve to benefit many Duluth neighborhoods. The survey will be open through May 7, 2014.
Paper surveys will also be available at all three Duluth Public Libraries or copies can be requested from:
