2018 Action Plan Community Participation

Community development starts with community participation.  Niagara Falls Community Development, through its Citizen Participation Process, develops an annual Action Plan that lists and prioritizes local housing and non-housing community development needs.  This yearly Action Plan is guided by our 5 Year Strategic Plan that details are measurable goals for community development that have been submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Our 2018 Action Plan Community Participation Survey is open until Friday, October 27.  It is available online HERE, at our community meetings listed below, and in person at 1022 Main Street, Niagara Falls, NY 14301.

Every year, we host neighborhood planning meetings to listen to the public and use your input in designing the annual action plans.  The 2018 Neighborhood Planning Meeting schedule is listed below.  Please come and help decide how to make our city a better place:

Wednesday, October 4, 6pm - Henry J. Kalfas Magnet School - 1730 Beech Ave
Wednesday, October 11, 12pm - LaSalle Public Library - 8728 Buffalo Ave
Saturday, October 21, 10am - Hyde Park Stone Room - 911 Robbins Dr
Thursday, October 26, 6pm - Niagara City Lofts - 561 Portage Rd

In addition to community participation, the 2018 Action Plan Grants provide HUD program funding to community organizations to make improvements to the City of Niagara Falls.  Please visit our grants page HERE for more information on how to apply.  All grant applications are due Friday, October 27 at or before 12pm.
