Weigh in on how City spends HUD funds at public meeting at GWHS, January 23

Next Tuesday, the Citizens’ Committee on Community Development (part of the Mayor’s office) will hold a public meeting at George Washington High School to discuss issues of fair and affordable housing, tenant protections, public services, economic development, and more.

According to their website, “The Citizens’ Committee on Community Development (CCCD) is the advisory body charged with public oversight of HUD-based funding allocations and policy matters directly related to community development efforts in the City.”

Five members are appointed by the Mayor of the City and County of San Francisco, and four members are appointed by the Board of Supervisors. This broad cross-section of the community provides for citizen participation and oversight in the development of the HUD consolidated planning process, makes policy recommendations on the development and implementation of a comprehensive community development structure for the City, assists with the identification of community needs and formulation of program priorities, and makes annual funding recommendations on CDBG and ESG programs to the Mayor and Board of Supervisors.

Tuesday’s meeting is CCCD’s annual public meeting that just happens to be taking place in our neighborhood. The advisory board is tasked with advising on HUD-based funding allocations for the entire city.

The meeting will run from 5pm to 7pm at George Washington High School, 600 32nd Avenue. If you have a question before the meeting, or wish to provide a written statement in lieu of attending, contact Mike King at (415) 701-4228, michael.king@sfgov.org.
