Housing and Community Development Needs Survey

Posted on August 9, 2019 at 10:48 AM by Meredith Mooney

Please help us understand Brookline’s housing and community development needs by completing this survey. 
Every five years, the Town of Brookline develops a Consolidated Plan which acts as a roadmap for how the Town will utilize its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds and HOME Partnership Investment Program funds. These funds support projects and programs that primarily serve the Town’s low-and moderate-income residents. It’s important to hear from you so that the Town can identify the most important housing and community development needs in Brookline and to help develop strategies to address them! Please complete the survey by September 30, 2019. Completed copies of the survey can be dropped off at the Department of Planning and Community Development in Town Hall at 333 Washington Street.

Complete the survey online here, or access printable copies of the survey here.
