Fiscal Year 2011-2012, runs from April 1, 2011 through March 31, 2012. These activities are funded via the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (U.S. HUD) for grant programs such as Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG), Home Investment Partnerships (HOME), and the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program and are administered by the Department of Community Development.
These public hearings, which will be held in each of the five City of Miami districts and two additional locations in metropolitan Miami-Dade County, will serve to inform the public, identify the needs of residents, and discuss the distribution of federal funding for Fiscal Year 2011-2012 to assist low- and moderate-income persons.
