Feedback Requested on Community Needs

  • Posted on: 06/04/2024

The State of New Jersey is looking for your feedback on community needs to help inform decisions on the use of funds received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the CDBG, HOME, ESG, HOPWA, and HTF programs.  As a valued stakeholder and state resident, your feedback will provide the State with unique perspectives.   


Here’s how you can help!   




The State is holding three community meetings that are open to the public.  The community meetings will be facilitated discussions around community needs, existing resources, and ways we can address gaps for our most vulnerable residents. Seats are limited and registration is necessary.  All meetings are virtual, and Zoom information will be forwarded after registration. To register for a session, please use this link. We’d also appreciate your sharing the word about these meetings and encouraging
others who may have valuable input to attend.  




Please complete our community survey (


Your participation will help us gain a more qualitative understanding of the experiences, opinions, and feelings of community members on housing and community service needs. We also ask that you share this survey with your members, consumers, clients, and partners!  Folks are more likely to complete a survey if they received it from someone they know and trust.  We hope to reach State residents far and wide with this survey – especially those within vulnerable populations. Your assistance with this outreach is invaluable.  We are attaching a QR Code for the survey that you can use as part of your promotion, if that’s helpful.  This survey will close on June 21 so we appreciate your sharing it as soon as possible.   


Note that the survey is also available in Spanish.  To change to the Spanish language version of the survey, click on the “English (United States)” dropdown in the upper right-hand corner of the page.  Select Espanol (Mexico), and the text of the survey will change to Spanish.  See screenshots below. 


If you have any questions about the survey or registration for community meetings, then please contact Jennifer Alpha, our consultant with TDA Consulting, Inc., at  


Thank you for your participation and all you do for our communities.  We look forward to learning your perspectives on these important topics!
