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 October 12, 2020. Comments received by the deadline will be included as a part of the public hearing.
As part of the federal CARES Act, the City of Clovis has been notified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development that it will receive allocation of CDBG-CV3 funds that must be used to prevent, prepare for and respond to COVID-19.
