DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Action Plan for the Distribution and use of Community Development Block Grant—Recovery Funds
[39 Pa.B. 5449]
[Saturday, September 19, 2009]
The Department of Community and Economic Development (Department) is proposing a minor amendment to the Commonwealth's Action Plan for Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2008 and the Program Year that began on January 1, 2008. The 2008 Action Plan is an update of the Commonwealth's Consolidated Plan for FFY 2004-2008. Due to revised activities for a small number of grantees, this minor amendment contains a revised Action Plan for the distribution and use of Community Development Block Grant-Recovery (CDBG-R) funds.
The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded the Commonwealth an allocation of $12,434,921 in CDBG-R funds, as authorized by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (42 U.S.C.A. § 5301).
The purpose of CDBG-R funds is to provide expedited funding for community development projects that will stimulate the economy and provide job creation and job retention benefits. The Department will award CDBG-R funds on a formula basis to local governments, which includes 13% of the funds for competitive/discretionary projects. The eligible activities include many of the regular activities eligible under the CDBG Program with several exceptions.
The Action Plan contains the list of projects that grantees will undertake using CDBG-R funds and local government contact information about those projects. This minor amendment to the Action Plan was submitted to HUD on September 2, 2009. Copies of the Action Plan and a list of projects can be obtained at: http://www.newpa.com/strengthen-your-community/technical-assistance/index.aspx.
Persons who would like additional information about this amendment should contact Jody Michael, Department of Community and Economic Development, Center for Community Development, 400 North Street, 4th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17120.
