The City of Mount Vernon, through the Department of Planning and Community Development (“PCD”), is advising the citizens that Year 2011 Action Plan document is available for review and comments. Year 2010 federal allocations are estimated to be follows: $1,942,598 Community Development Block Grants (“CDBG”) and $691,168 HOME Investment Partnerships (“HOME”) programs.
The 2011 Action Plan describes the specific activities to be undertaken under the CDBG and HOME. The plan was developed after two (2) public hearings were held to obtain the views of citizens on housing and community development needs, including non-housing community development needs and the proposed use of federal funds and objectives.
The majority of the activities will take place in the CDBG target area principally benefiting low and/moderate income persons, aid in the prevention or elimination of slum and blight and to address other community development need having a particular urgency that is not addressed by other financial resources.
The 2011 Action Plan will be available for review and comments for a 30-day period from Monday thru Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. at the office of PCD. All comments must be submitted by May 27, 2011 in writing to the Department of Planning and Community Development, City Hall, Roosevelt Square-2nd fl., Mt. Vernon, NY 10550 – Att: Carmen Sylvester, Executive Director.
