Lakewood’s Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) will hold the first of (3) public hearings prior to submission of the City’s FY21 Annual Action Plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 at 6pm.
Due to pandemic social distancing requirements, the hearing will be conducted virtually via the GoToMeeting platform. Please visit the City Calendar @ http://www.onelakewood.com/calendar/ for information regarding how members of the public can participate in and submit real-time feedback during the hearing.
The CAC reviews requests for federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding submitted by City departments and not-for-profit agencies then makes recommendations to Lakewood City Council regarding the allocation of these funds for the coming year.
Hearing topics include descriptions of the CDBG, ESG, and HOME programs; preliminary estimates of funding the City anticipates receiving from these programs; Lakewood’s citizen participation process with regard to federal funding; the City’s housing and non-housing community development needs and goals; and continuation of the three-year (FY19-FY21) certification period during which at least 70% of the City’s CDBG expenditures must directly benefit low-moderate income households.
The Citizens Advisory Committee will hear presentations from applicants for FY21 federal funding on October 7th, 14th and 21st, 2020 and conduct its 2nd FY21 public hearing on October 28, 2020. All CAC sessions are open to the public and will be held virtually via the GoToMeeting platform due to pandemic social distancing requirements.
Feedback received during the public comment portion of each hearing will become part of the public record. Please contact Dan Wyman at 216.529.7680 or Daniel.Wyman@lakewoodoh.net for additional information.
