NOTICE OF PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD AND PUBLIC HEARING FOR AN AMENDMENT TO THE 2019-20 CDBG ANNUAL ACTION PLAN

The City of Clovis proposes to amend the 2019-20 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Annual Action Plan.  By this Notice, the City of Clovis invites parties that have an interest in the proposed amendment or may be impacted by the amendment to provide written or oral comments. Comments must be received by the close of business on January 4, 2021.  Comments received by the deadline will be included as a part of the public hearing.

The purpose of the public hearing is to consider the cancellation of the Dennis/Beverly Alley project in the amount of $140,000, and redirection of $100,000 of those funds to continue the Emergency Housing Payment Program.  Continuing the Emergency Housing Payment Program will allow Clovis to prevent, prepare for and respond to COVID-19 by providing low-income households who have suffered a COVID-related income loss with rent or mortgage assistance.
