On Housing and Community Development Needs for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

 

Notice is hereby given that the Mayor and Council of Rockville, Maryland, will conduct a public hearing on Monday, September 13, 2021 at 7:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as it may be heard, for receiving input on community needs for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for Fiscal Year 2023 (Program Year 48).  Testimony from this hearing will be considered by the Mayor and Council in funding decisions.

 

The CDBG grant is a federal grant for housing and community development programs. The City of Rockville has received approximately $263,000 annually over the last several years. 

 

To be eligible for funding, all CDBG projects must principally benefit low- and moderate-income people or prevent or eliminate slums and blight and comply with all Federal program requirements.  CDBG funds can be used to acquire property for public uses (recreation, public facilities, historic preservation, neighborhood conservation); build public facilities (roads, curbs, sidewalks, parks, neighborhood facilities, sewerage collection systems, water distribution systems, flood and drainage systems); remove architectural barriers for people with disabilities and the elderly (widen doors, install wheelchair ramps); provide loans and grants to rehabilitate houses and apartments; provide programs to preserve and restore public or private historic properties; and implement economic development activities (training programs, energy conservation programs, commercial revitalization).

 

For further information, contact the Department of Housing and Community Development at (240) 314-8300.  Additional information will be available in the Mayor and Council agenda item, which will be online by September 10, 2021 at:  www.rockvillemd.gov/AgendaCenter
