Orange County Launches Community Development Plan and Fair Housing Study
Orange County's Housing and Community Development division will soon develop strategic plans that will feature important community feedback. The community development plan also called the Five-Year Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan, assesses the current housing market, discusses characteristics of the County population, identifies community improvement priorities, and outlines a plan to fund and implement them. The plans help to guide investments of federal dollars in affordable housing, social services, community development, and homelessness assistance programs across the County for 2022-2026. The community's opinions and perceptions are an essential part of these planning processes, and everyone is invited to participate. Your input will provide crucial information to local policymakers, County staff, housing providers, social service providers, lenders, and affordable housing advocates. Residents are encouraged to complete an online survey to engage in this process and share ideas with the planning team.
