The CDBG program is administered by the New York State Office of Community Renewal (OCR), and will make available to eligible local governments approximately $20 million for the 2022 program year for housing, economic development, public facilities, public infrastructure, and planning activities, with the principal purpose of benefitting low/moderate income persons. The hearing will provide further information about the CDBG program and will allow for citizen participation in the development of any proposed grant applications and/or to provide technical assistance to develop alternate proposals. Comments on the CDBG program or proposed project(s) will be received at this time. The hearing is being conducted pursuant to Section 570.486, Subpart I of the CFR and in compliance with the requirements of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended.
At the hearing the Village will describe types of grant assistance available from the NYS Office of Community Renewal and will seek comments and suggestions from the public as to proposed uses of Community Development Block Grant funds. The types of activities that may be undertaken with Community Development Block Grant program funds include acquisition and disposition of real property, public facilities and improvements, clearance activities, public services, payment of non-federal share of another federal program, removal of architectural barriers, relocation, rehabilitation and preservation activities, economic development and job creating activities.
Draft application(s) for Community Development Block Grant assistance including possible Public Infrastructure, Public Facilities and Community Planning applications will be discussed. The Village is considering a 2022 CFA Public Infrastructure application in an amount not to exceed $1,000,000 to replace aged sanitary sewer facilities to continue complying with a NYS DEC Order on Consent. The proposed project(s) will primarily benefit low and moderate income persons.
Documents related to the proposed Public Infrastructure project that will be reviewed at the public hearing will be available for public inspection at office of the Village Clerk by request and at the Village website on or before June 3, 2022.
