Make It Yours, Jersey City! Residents Asked To Take Consolidated Plan Survey

The City of Jersey City is preparing the five year Consolidated Plan for federal funds - HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) – that primarily serve low and moderate‐income residents and areas. The planning process to create the Consolidated Plan serves as the framework for a community‐wide dialogue to identify housing, economic, and community development priorities.

These federal programs have limited funding. There is more need within our community than available funding. The City must determine how to use these funds to achieve the biggest public benefit and, Make It Yours. When you make your voice heard, you are helping City leaders prioritize spending.

Jersey City Make It Yours – Your Voice Counts! By completing the Consolidated Plan Community Needs Survey you provide input to help prioritize City needs over the next 5 years.
