The Erie County Department of Environment and Planning (“DEP”) will be hosting public hearings for the draft 2018 Community Development Action Plan of the Five-Year Consolidated Plan 2015-2019 Community Development Block Grant (“CDBG”), Home Investment Partnership Grant (“HOME”), and Emergency Grant (“HESG”) this week in three communities across Erie County. DEP has prepared a draft 2018 Action Plan which outlines goals and objectives relative 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 2018 provides a basis for assessing performance against the Consolidated Plan and identifies specific projects for 2018. It also serves as a combined application for federal funds under three (3) of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (“HUD”) formula grant programs, including CDBG, HOME, and HESG.

  • ·         Tuesday, January 23; 6:30 PM at the Lackawanna Public Library Community Room, 560 Ridge Road, Lackawanna NY
