NOTICE OF PUBLIC COMMENT
2022 ANNUAL ACTION PLAN
FOR CDBG, ESG, HOME and HTF
The Maine State Housing Authority (MaineHousing) and the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) are drafting the State of Maine 2022 Annual Action Plan. Citizens are encouraged to comment.
The state’s 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan outlines the strategies that MaineHousing and DECD will develop to address low and moderate income housing and community development needs throughout the non-urbanized areas of Maine. The plan describes the various housing and community development initiatives that the State intends to undertake, including funding levels and target populations. The plan has historically identified the following areas as top priorities: improve housing quality, expand the supply of affordable housing, help Maine people attain housing stability, improve economic opportunity and improve public infrastructure.
The 2022 Annual Action Plan will identify the annual goals, priorities and objectives for using the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME), the Housing Trust Fund (HTF) and the Emergency Solutions Grant Program (ESG). We are seeking input on how these funds should be allocated.
MaineHousing and DECD will hold a public hearing to gather citizen input on March 7, 2022 at 2pm at MaineHousing, 26 Edison Drive, Augusta. The meeting room is accessible to persons with physical disabilities. Upon sufficient notice, appropriate communication auxiliary aids and services will be provided. To listen or testify virtually, please contact Paula Weber no later than 5:00 p.m. on March 4, 2022, at MaineHousing, 26 Edison Drive, Augusta, Maine 04330; (207) 626-4600 (voice); 1-800-452-4668 (voice in-state only); 711 (Maine Relay); or via e-mail: [email protected].
