Comments sought on county’s federal grant performance


September 13, 2013

Snohomish County on Sept. 9 published a draft performance report on its administration of nearly $4 million in federal housing and community development grants to benefit low- and moderate-income projects and now seeks reviews and comments from the public.

The “Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report” is a requirement the county must meet to receive the federal grant funds. The report details grant performance during the 2012 program year, which ran from July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013. An online copy of the report is available at

Paper copies of the report are available at the main branch of Everett public library and the Snohomish County branches of the Sno-Isle Regional Library System, and at the Snohomish County Human Services Department, Office of Housing and Community Development, Fourth Floor, 3000 Rockefeller Ave, Everett.

The county administers the annual federal grants under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) and Emergency Solutions (ESG) programs. The funds support affordable housing and public facility, infrastructure, and service projects that primarily benefit low- and moderate-income people, families, and neighborhoods in Snohomish County.

Written comments are welcome via e-mail and regular mail and will be accepted until 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24. Send comments to Sue Tracy at or at the Snohomish County Human Services Department address listed above.

To request a reasonable accommodation or a paper copy of the report, contact Sue Tracy at e-mail listed above, at 425-388-3269, or 7-1-1 for TTY users.
