The City of Rocky Mount, as the lead entity of the Down East HOME Consortium, is in the process of drafting a 2017-2022 Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan is designed to help states and local jurisdictions to assess their affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions. There will be preliminary meetings in both Nash and Edgecombe Counties, in addition to the City of Rocky Mount, to gather information about Public Needs on February 15th and 16th, 2017. Please see the notices below for information regarding these public meetings. Please also feel free to participate in an online survey to offer your feedback.
