On Wednesday, March 29th, from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. the Community Development Department will hold a public hearing in preparation of the City’s FY2024 Annual Action Plan for the 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 hearing 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, 2023 and ending June 30, 2024. 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. ALL INTERESTED PARTIES INCLUDING RESIDENTS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND.
