Meanwhile, the City of Knoxville's Community Development Department is still seeking public input for its Five-Year Consolidated Plan, which identifies community needs and priorities. The five-year plan outlines the strategies the City will use to address those priorities, using U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds. Federal funding supports the CDBG and Homeless Grants for which the City is currently accepting applications. 

For more information about the grants or to comment on the Five-Year Consolidated Plan, contact Linda Rust, Community Development, at lrust@knoxvilletn.gov or 865-215-2120.
