Also featured is a representative from the City of Austin’s Neighborhood Housing and Community Development. As a result of the African-American Quality of Life Initiative of 2005 African American businesses now have more opportunity to provide input on the plans for the federal funds before decisions are made on how the funds will be allocated.
The City of Austin anticipates cuts to federal funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in fiscal year 2011-12. This federal funding assists with affordable housing, community development, economic development, and public service needs.
