Pike County Housing Survey The Public is Encouraged to Respond Online by September 15
PIKE COUNTY, PA – The Pike County Commissioners have engaged Diana T. Myers and Associates, Inc., a housing and community development consulting firm, to facilitate a Strategic Housing Planning Process for the County. An essential part of the process is soliciting input from community members as well as from housing and human service professionals.
Pike County residents are encouraged to visit www.pikepa.org and click the Pike County Housing Survey link under the What’s New column to complete a brief online survey by September 15, 2020. The nine-question survey will take only a few minutes to complete and responses will be confidential.
“Affordable housing is a critical need for many people in Pike County. The results of this online survey will inform a Strategic Housing Plan that will identify the greatest unmet local housing needs and establish priorities and strategies to address those needs,” say the Pike County Commissioners.
The Strategic Housing Planning Process is made possible by the Optional Affordable Housing Funds Act, formerly known as Act 137 of 1992, which allows counties to fund projects and programs to increase the availability and quality of affordable housing through fees charged for the recording of deeds and mortgages.
