The Annual Action Plan will utilize Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to address the needs of low and moderate-income persons and households as required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
You can provide input on things like housing rehabilitation, jobs, code enforcement, demolition of vacant building, sidewalk reconstruction, park improvements, and other neighborhood issues.
