CDBG Public Meeting for 2020-2024 5-Year Plan Development

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program

Post Date:09/05/2019

The City of Moorhead will soon be preparing its (2020-2024) 5-Year Consolidated Plan and 2020 Annual Action Plan for Housing and Community Development. The plans are used to allocate Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, assistance provided by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to promote affordable housing and economic opportunities for low-to-moderate income persons. The 5-year Consolidated Plan sets strategies and goals for CDBG resources. The (2015-2019) 5-year plan may be viewed on the City’s website. Before publishing its draft (2020-2024) 5-Year Consolidated Plan and 2020 Action Plan, the City will hold two meetings to discuss community development needs:

Tuesday, September 17, 12 noon
Moorhead Public Library, lower level meeting room, 118 5th St S, Moorhead

Wednesday, September 25, 6 pm
Moorhead Public Library, lower level meeting room, 118 5th St S, Moorhead

The facility is accessible for persons with mobility impairments.

To make arrangements for services call 218.299.5434; for TDD/Relay service dial 711.

You are welcome to attend the meeting. If you would prefer, please share your comments, ideas, or concerns regarding housing and community development via the City's website or contact the Community Development Program Administrator at 218.299.5375.
