Project Details

What We Need
  • Feedback on the current website’s layout, user functionality, visual design, content, and other key features
  • Clear articulation of the Organization’s goals for the website
  • Recommendations for improvements to help achieve the Organization’s desired goals
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a staffer focusing on this project, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have examples of other sites we want to emulate, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $6,772 , allowing us to Maintain and expand our services despite decreasing federal funding.

Our division administers the federal funding that comes into the City from HUD. We are responsible for several community services that benefit low-income areas. For direct service we sell affordable housing, fund housing rehabilitation and provide relocation services to people who have to leave their homes. For indirect service we fund nonprofit groups and developers in areas like affordable housing, senior services, youth services, homelessness relief and more. We want to build a website that works for everyone that uses our services. From large nonprofits to individuals everyone should be able to find what they're looking for from us.
