Community Needs Assessment

Each year the City of San Mateo prepares an Annual Action Plan that identifies activities that are important to the San Mateo community and can be funded with federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. Planning is taking place for a new five year Consolidated Plan for 2018-23 as well as the Action plan for 2018-19. CDBG has several eligible funding categories including public service grants to non-profit agencies, affordable housing, and community development activities.

The Community Needs Assessment for 2017 is now complete. Thank you for your participation. C
ommunity meetings were held on November 1 and 18. In addition, we received several responses to an online survey and some written comments. Please see a summary of all public comments received here:
