Public hearing for HUD Consolidated 2019 Action Plan scheduled for February 1

By: Mia Watson

The State of Vermont's Department of Housing and Community Development will conduct a public hearing to receive input on its Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Consolidated 2019 Action Plan.

The Plan outlines priorities for the use of approximately $13 million in federal funds for affordable housing in the upcoming program year (July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020). The purpose of the hearing is to listen to residents’ views about the state’s housing, homelessness, public facility and services, and non-housing community development needs, as well as gather ideas for grant activities the State should consider funding in the next program year. The Department is also seeking feedback on how the programs funded by HUD under past plans performed in meeting the State’s goals.

The meeting will be held Friday, February 1, 2019 from 3:30 - 4:00 p.m. in the Calvin Coolidge Room, 1 National Life Drive, Davis Building, 6th Floor, Montpelier.
