The Erie County Department of Environment and Planning (“DEP”) will be hosting public hearings for the draft 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan for Community Development and the 2020 Action Plan for the Community Development Block Grant (“CDBG”), Home Investment Partnership Grant (“HOME”), and Emergency Solutions Grant (“HESG”) during the week of January 20 in three communities across Erie County. DEP has prepared a draft 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan and 2020 Action Plan which outlines goals and objectives related to housing, economic and community development, and homeless issues in the communities that make up the Erie County CDBG and HOME Investment Partnership Consortium. The draft Plan gives specific attention to the needs of low- to moderate-income households residing in the Consortia communities.
The Action Plan for 2020 provides a basis for assessing performance against the Consolidated Plan and identifies specific projects for 2020. It also serves as a combined application for federal funds under three of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (“HUD”) formula grant programs, including CDBG, HOME, and HESG.
Public hearings on the Draft 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan and 2020 Action Plan:
• Tuesday, January 21: 6:30 PM at the Lackawanna Public Library Community Room, 560 Ridge Road, Lackawanna NY
• Wednesday, January 22: 6:30 PM at Hamburg Town Hall lobby, 6100 South Park Avenue,
• Thursday, January 23: 7:00 PM at the City of Tonawanda court Room, 200 Niagara Street, Tonawanda NY
