On Thursday, February 22, 2024 from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m., the Community Development Department will hold an information and public comment session in preparation of the City’s FY2025 Annual Action Plan.

The Plan describes the City’s expected utilization of federal funding for programs that benefit low and moderate-income residents of Cambridge, as well as eligible HOPWA beneficiaries across Middlesex and Essex counties. This requirement of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) combines the funding applications for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), the HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) programs.

The purpose of the session is to solicit public comments on affordable housing, economic development, public service and other community development needs as they relate to low and moderate-income Cambridge residents, and HOPWA qualifying residents across Middlesex and Essex counties. The Annual Action Plan covers the period beginning July 1, 2024 and ending June 30, 2025. The Plan will enumerate resources, opportunities and community development needs as they relate to the Goals established by Cambridge’s City Council, as well as the objectives of the HOPWA program.

The meeting will be held in the 2nd Floor Community Meeting Room at City Hall Annex, 344 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02139. Translation Services are available upon request.
