DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Revision to the Notice of a Substantial Amendment for the Community Development Block Grant—Disaster Recovery 2012 Allocation
[44 Pa.B. 2761]
[Saturday, May 10, 2014]
Due to additional information needing to be added to the original substantial amendment of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for Fiscal Year 2012 Community Development Block Grant—Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Action Plan of March 24, 2014, a revision to that substantial amendment is being proposed by the Department of Community and Economic Development (Department). Notice is hereby given for a public comment period to review the revised substantial amendment. The public comment period is from May 10, 2014, through May 17, 2014.
The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued a notice at 77 FR 22583 (April 16, 2012), which awarded $27,142,501 of CDBG-DR funds to the Commonwealth to be administered by the Department. An Action Plan for these funds was submitted to HUD on July 23, 2012, and subsequently approved. As the needs for disaster relief in the various areas of funding have changed since the submission of the original plan, due to completion of the first round of applications for assistance by affected municipalities, changes need to be made to those areas in the original Action Plan. In addition a more definitive unmet needs survey has been completed and is presented in the revised substantial amendment. These changes, based on the Pennsylvania Citizen Participation Plan for the Consolidated Plan, constitute a significant change in the distribution of funds under the program and thus necessitate a substantial amendment to the original Action Plan.
The revised substantial amendment to the Action Plan and supporting documentation is available for a 7-day public comment period and can be viewed on the Department's web site under the CDBG-DR section at http://www.newpa.com/community/documents-publications/cdbg-dr. The draft is also made available to the Tri-County Branch of the Pennsylvania Association of the Blind for transfer to electronic media. The text is available to hearing-impaired persons by means of the Department's web site at the link listed previously. A translation into Spanish will also be available on the Department's web site. The final version of the substantial amendment will be submitted to HUD no later than May 24, 2014.
Persons who would like to provide written comment on the revised substantial amendment to the CDBG-DR Action Plan may send those comments electronically to RA-DCEDcdbgemail@example.com or mail to the attention of Mary J. Smith, Department of Community and Economic Development, Center for Community Financing, 400 North Street, 4th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17120. Comments must be received before 4 p.m. on May 19, 2014.
