IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL CONSOLIDATED PLAN GRANTEES (CDBG, HOME, HOPWA, AND ESG GRANTEES)
On Wednesday August 1 at 4pm ET, the Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) will host a one-hour webinar demonstrating how grantees can use the eCon Planning Suite to enhance their efforts to engage in meaningful Citizen Participation and Consultation.
Have you ever held a public hearing where no one came or held a public comment period that received no comments? Some grantees struggle to generate interest in the Consolidated Planning process. During this presentation, participants will learn about:
How each of the components of the eCon Planning Suite provides resources to support the Citizen Participation and Consultation processes.
Using the eCon Planning Suite to identify needs, present priorities to the public and other stakeholders, and soliciting feedback.
A case study for using CPD maps to increase engagement in the Consolidated Planning process.
Tips and ideas for innovative outreach strategies.
What’s coming in an accompanying toolkit, which will be available in August.
