The Fulton County Housing and Human Services Department wants public input on the 2014 Annual Action Plan for FY 2014 grant programs. Those programs include the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and Neighborhood Stabilization (NSP) Programs. The Citizen Review (Public Meetings) and Comment Period begins on October 4, 2013 and ends on November 3, 2013. Submission to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) must be made by November 15, 2013.
Fulton County annually receives over $2 million under three formula programs from HUD through the CDBG, HOME, and ESG Programs. These funds can be used to provide improvements and services that benefit all Fulton County citizens, with the exception of those citizens residing within the city limits of Atlanta, Johns Creek, Roswell and Sandy Springs. The national objective of the funds is to improve the living conditions of low- and moderate-income people. As required by HUD, Fulton County must conduct citizen participation meetings and allow citizens to comment on the FY 2014 Annual Action Plan to the Five-Year 2010-2014 Consolidated Plan. Self-Assessment Needs Survey forms will also be provided for citizen input.
Citizens are encouraged to attend and participate in the public meetings to assist the County in finalizing its FY 2014 Annual Action Plan. The comments will be provided to the Board of Commissioners, which will consider adoption of the FY 2014 Annual Action Plan at its scheduled meeting at 10 a.m. on November 6, 2013, at 141 Pryor Street Atlanta, GA 30303. Additionally, citizens will have the opportunity to comment during the Public Comment portion of the BOC meeting on November 6, 2013.
For citizens unable to attend and participate in the public hearings, written comments on the Fulton County Draft 2014 Annual Action Plan may be submitted in person or by mail to 137 Peachtree Street, SW, Suite 300, Atlanta, Georgia or faxed to 404-893-6620 by the deadline of 5:00 p.m., November 3, 2013.
