Public meetings set for HUD grant priorities

Fri, 01/17/2020 - 4:47pm -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine The Vermont Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is creating a new five-year Consolidated Plan to develop local funding priorities for the program years 2020-2024. This plan is the State’s application for more than $10 million in annual grant funding provided to the state by US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Office of Community Planning and Development.

To ensure that all Vermonters have an opportunity to participate in developing the Plan and priorities, DHCD is conducting a series of four community outreach meetings around the state.

The four community outreach meetings are:

  • January 23, 2020: Milton, Fire Station Community Room, 47 Bombardier Rd; 5:00-7:00 pm
  • February 4, 2020: Castleton, Fire Station Community Room, 273 VT Route 30; 5:00-7:00 pm
  • February 19, 2020: St. Johnsbury, Welcome Center, 51 Depot Square; 5:00-7:00 pm
  • March 9, 2020: Springfield, Springfield Cinema 3, 26 Main St; 1:00-3:00 pm

DHCD will conduct a Public Hearing at 3:30 PM on January 31, 2020 at its offices located at 1 National Life Drive, Davis Building, 6th floor, in Montpelier.

DHCD is also conducting an online survey to get input about local community’s needs in the areas of public facilities and services, job creation, housing, homelessness, and fair housing. The survey can be found by visiting https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HMSFX5Y
