The City of Bayonne is in the process of preparing a Five Year Consolidated Plan for the program years 2015-2019.
These documents are required by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to distribute funds for
the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and other federal programs. The Plan will describe the City's
housing and community development needs, strategies, and priorities. These documents affect neighborhoods and
organizations across the City, and input from residents, city agencies and service organizations are vital to
identifying needs and allocating resources. For this reason, we are asking individuals to complete this brief
online survey as part of the planning process. You may respond from your home computer, or use a computer at the
public library, a church, or a civic center. This will help us gather as much input as possible. It is important
that we receive your input in order to prepare a complete and accurate plan that reflects our City's needs and
The results of the survey will be available for public review and comment and discussed at public hearings in
March and April of 2015.
Please go to the link above and complete the survey in either English or Spanish. The survey
should take about five minutes to complete. Please check bayonnenj.org for
updates and information.
If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about the survey, please contact Ms. Samantha Howard, Community
Development Manager at (201) 858-6120 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address
a wide range of unique community development needs. Beginning in 1974, the CDBG program is one of the longest continuously run
programs at HUD. The CDBG program provides annual grants on a formula basis to 1209 general units of local government and States.
Non-Profit organizations that provide services to Bayonne's low to moderate income families and individuals may be eligible to
receive grant funding assistance with providing those services.
