Amendment to the 2021 CDBG Program Description

HUD has announced the 2021 Allocations for CDBG, HOME, ESG and HOPWA. NHTF allocations have not yet been announced.  The 2021 Action Plan and the 2021 CDBG Program Description have been revised to reflect actual funding.  Changes to the Program Methods of Distribution for HOME, ESG, and HOPWA have been made as indicated in the draft 2021 Action Plan published in January 2021 .

CDBG received almost $1 million less than anticipated and will adjust its Method of Distribution by reducing funding for the Community Infrastructure Program. This represents a substantial amendment to the 2021 Action Plan and the State is again making the 2021 Action Plan and 2021 CDBG Program Description available for public review.  In accordance with the State's Citizen Participation Plan, the draft documents will be available for 30 days, from March 10, 2021 through April 8, 2021.
