In accordance with this regulation, the State is providing the opportunity for citizens to comment on the 2017 Annual Action Plan draft report, which will be submitted to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on or before May 15, 2017.

The survey consists of over fifty questions, HOWEVER you can choose to only answer questions relating to the funding source that is most important to you. The average respondent will likely answer from twelve (12) to twenty (20) questions, which should not take longer than ten (10) minutes.
