In accordance with its Citizen Participation Plan, there will be a Public Hearing to solicit citizen input on the needs of the community before the Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) on Wednesday, February 18, 2015 at 5:30 p.m. in the Veteran’s Memorial, 2nd floor, City Hall, 235 Grand Street, Waterbury, CT. The facility is handicapped accessible.
The City of Waterbury (City) is pleased to announce the availability of 2015-2016 CDBG funds. The City has not yet received notice of its allocations for the upcoming program year and, per HUD’s guidance, intends to use current year’s allocations as the baseline for planning purposes. These amounts may increase or decrease depending upon the final federal approved budget. The 2014-2015 allocations were as follows: $1,913,444 (CDBG), $162,197 Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and $657,694 HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME). Program income is anticipated to be $16,300 for HOME and $14,000 for CDBG.
In addition, the City has also estimated that it will have approximately $30,000 in funds from previous years due to the cancellation of projects/ activities or the completion of them under budget. These funds will be reallocated during this process and included within the Annual Action Plan. However, due to the limits on public services and administration and because these reprogrammed funds are not viewed as new funds, the reallocation of these reprogrammed funds shall be limited to those projects and activities not categorized as public service or administration.
The City will provide interpreters and assistance for non-English speaking, hearing-impaired or disabled residents upon receiving a request at least four (4) days prior to this hearing date. Contact Casey Lawlor at 203-346-2607 ext. 7281 or at Lawlor@wdconline.org. All interested person(s) are encouraged to attend.
Funding applications for the HOME program are taken on an ongoing basis. Information and technical assistance can be obtained by contacting HOME Program Manager Tina Lubus at 346-2607 Ext. 7282 or by email at email@example.com
