Neighborhood Resources Division Seeks Residents Input On HUD Funding And Planning

Wichita Falls, TX- The Wichita Falls Neighborhood Resources Division is hosting a meeting Monday to get residents thoughts on how the city should utilize future funds from the Department of Housing and Development. 

The meeting will take place from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. at the Wichita Falls Library, in Room 204, located at 600 11th Street.

Michael Uriniak, Wichita Falls Neighborhood Resources Administrator, said residents have one night only to give input on how the city should use federal funds.

Each year, the HUD gives cities money to fund public and private projects within their local community.

In order to receive HUD funds, every five years, the city is required to put on a public meeting gauge community or neighborhood needs.

From those meetings a consolidated plan is created, that will help guide, city leaders on what public and private projects should be funded through the community development block grant.

"This is one of the steps in developing a consolidated plan,” said Uriniak. “It's a rather large document that goes into great detail about the needs of the community and how we are going to address those needs."

Uriniak said some of the programs and projects, HUD has or will fund include: the installation of school zone flashing warning signs, supplement cost for childcare for low income families, and installation of playgrounds at local parks.

In 2015, the Neighborhood Resources Division, said it expects to fund about $700,000 in projects.
