Public Hearing for CDBG Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan on February 6, 2024
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble is pleased to announce that the City of Kingston will hold a public hearing for the City’s 2024-2028 Consolidated Plan and 2024 Annual Action Plan for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program on February 6, 2024, at 6:00pm at City Hall.
The City of Kingston is in the process of preparing the 2024-2028 Consolidated Plan and 2024 Annual Action Plan, to be submitted to HUD on or about May 15, 2024. The City anticipates that its 2024 CDBG Program allocation will be $650,000, but funding has not yet been allocated.
“We are holding the public hearing so that the community has ample time to provide input on the housing and other community development needs of the City over the next five years,” said Mayor Noble. “All interested individuals and organizations are invited to attend the meeting and offer their comments, which will be taken into consideration for the 2024-2028 Consolidated Plan and 2024 Annual Action Plan.”
“This is a great opportunity for the public to participate in offering the City their thoughts and suggestions as the City forms a vision for the next five-year consolidated plan,” said Amanda Bruck, Director of the Office of Community Development. “Once the plan has been written it will be used as a template of how the CDBG dollars will be spent over the course of the next five years.”
Written comments will be accepted by the Office of Community Development until March 6, 2024.
A second public hearing will be held to present the draft plan to the public. The City will consider comments on the proposed plan prior to adoption by the Common Council.
