Fulton County Needs Citizens Review and Input Regarding Upcoming Housing and Urban Development Grant Funds | Print |

 

Citizen Review and Comment Period April 27, 2016 through May 27, 2016

Fulton County will receive approximately $2.8 million in Federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs.   These funds will be used to provide improvements and services to improve the living conditions of low- and moderate-income citizens throughout Fulton County.

As required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Fulton County is publishing for citizen review and comment, its Annual Action Plans and Consolidated Plan.   The Consolidated Plan requires local governments receiving federal funds directly from HUD, to determine strategies, community needs, long and short-term objectives, resources and proposed projects for submission as a combined planning and application document.   Public input is required before any decisions are made on project funding by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners.
