Community grant survey ending soon in La Crosse

A survey to determine how the city of La Crosse will spend $1.1 million will end soon.

The survey will determine how the city will use the money from the U.S. Housing and Urban

Development’s Community Development Block Grant.

The survey is open until October 31st.

Nearly two thousand people have taken the survey already.

In the past, grant funds were used to help homeowners make repairs on their homes, fund affordable multi-family housing, and offer loans to small-businesses.

The impact of the grants is being felt by community members.

“People particularly in the neighborhoods that we’ve really focused on, like Powell-Poage-Hamilton neighborhood, people are feeling very positive about the work that the city is doing in their neighborhood,” said Caroline Gregerson, City of La Crosse community development administrator.

A link to the survey is available on the City of La Crosse’s website.

A printed copy of the survey will be available at the City Planning Department in City Hall.
