You can help ADECA

Posted: Updated:
 The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs needs your help with telling the department about your community's needs.  You can do that by completing two short online surveys: the community needs survey and the fair housing survey.  The needs you highlight could be addressed by Community Development Block Grant funding that the state awards each year. According to a news release, the survey results will be included in an updated five-year consolidated plan covering several federally funded community-assistance programs administered in Alabama by ADECA

"By taking just 10 minutes of your time, you can help us tailor these programs to more effectively address the needs of Alabama communities," ADECA Director Jim Byard Jr. said.

The Fair Housing Survey will help identify barriers and policies that may prevent fair and equal access to properties for rent or for sale. The survey results will be included in a statewide "Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice" study required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.    

The deadline for completion of these surveys is July 10.
