The Village invites the public to take a survey to help determine needs and decide how Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds will be spent over the next five program years (2020-2024). The online survey is open October 14-November 1, 2019, will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and is available at: www.surveymonkey.com/s/vopgrants Paper surveys also are available at the offices of the Oak Park Neighborhood Services Division, in Room 214 of Village Hall, 123 Madison Street.
In program year 2019 the Village of Oak Park received $1,633,190 in CDBG funds and $143,061 in ESG funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to use to primarily assist low and moderate income persons, including persons experiencing homelessness and those at risk. Grant funds are spent based on the Village's five-year Consolidated Plan, which is developed through input from the community and then submitted to HUD. By completing this survey, you will help to ensure that funds are directed to the most critical community development and housing needs in the Village.
The Village also will hold an open-house 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan needs assessment meeting on December 3, 2019 from 5-8 p.m. in Room 101 of Village Hall to determine community development priorities. For more information call Mark Dwyer, Grants Supervisor, at 708.358.5416.
