Notice of Public Meeting on
FY 2017 Annual Action Plan Community Needs
Madison County Community Development is in the process of preparing its Annual Action Plan for Program Year 2017. This plan is for its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Programs.
The geographic area we serve includes all of Madison County. In Program Year 2017, we expect to receive approximately $2,718,393 for the CDBG program, and $735,540 for the HOME program.
Federal regulations require the County to spend these funds with the objectives of benefiting low-moderate income persons; aiding in the prevention or elimination of slums and blight; or meeting other community development needs posing serious and immediate threats to the health and welfare of the community. The goals of the programs must be to provide decent housing, establish and maintain stable living environments and expand economic opportunities. The County is in the process of determining the needs to be addressed in the Annual Action Plan. Examples of needs which have been addressed in our previous Annual Action Plan are: improving public infrastructure; conserving and expanding the County’s housing stock; and strengthening economic development.
We are interested in your comments on our past performance and appreciate your input as we determine the needs of low and low-moderate income persons, set annual goals, and plan how to best meet these goals with the funds available. Help us to serve you and your community better.
