The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has requested feedback from organizations engaged in community development and affordable housing projects in the development of a survey tool. The Community Development Marketplace (CDM) Project Intake Survey is intended to provide HUD with a database of projects which will help them target relevant information and technical assistance to organizations actively working on different types of projects. It is also intended to allow respondents to find other organizations across the country working on similar issues and solutions, by joining peer groups through the survey process. Respondents will not have to be actively applying for federal assistance at the time they respond, or be part of larger consortia using or applying for federal assistance.
On November 28, 2016, Federal Register Notice FR-5909-N-81 was published, announcing a 30-day Public Notice of Proposed Information Collection. Specifically we are asking the public to review the questions in the survey, and the list of the Peer Cohorts attached to the survey, and answer questions listed below and on the survey’s web page.
Submit any comments and/or your answers to Anna.P.Guido@hud.gov and copy CDM@hud.gov by December 28, 2016. Also feel free to submit user questions or information on any technical issues via CDM@hud.gov.
