Notice of Public Hearing on Action Plan Fiscal Year 2018


Public Hearing and Comment Period on Action Plan Fiscal Year 2018

The City of Annapolis is preparing to submit the annual Housing and Community Development Action Plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The annual Action Plan outlines the projects and programs the City will support during fiscal year 2018 to further the goals of the Consolidated Plan. Funding of these projects and programs comes from the City's annual entitlement allocation of Community Development Block Grant funds from HUD. The City expects its allocation to be $249,088.

The annual Action Plan requires citizen participation in developing policies and strategies regarding discrimination in housing, management of subsidized housing, affordable housing opportunities, rehabilitation of existing housing units, services for disadvantaged segments of the population, revitalization of low and moderate-income neighborhoods, and other community development issues. The allocation of funding and resources shown in the FY 2018 Action Plan takes into consideration input provided earlier this year by citizens and community service organizations, primarily at a public hearing conducted by the City's Housing and Community Development Committee on February 21, 2017. The FY 2018 Action Plan is available for review and comment by the public from May 5, 2017 through June 5, 2017 at the Community Development Office (third floor), Planning and Zoning Department, 145 Gorman Street, Annapolis, MD 21401, the Anne Arundel County Library, 1410 West Street, Annapolis, MD 21401, the Housing Authority of the City of Annapolis, 1217 Madison Street, Annapolis, MD 21403 and on the City’s web site at Please contact Theresa Wellman, Community Development Administrator, 410-263-7961 ext. 7798, to obtain a copy or to submit comments.
