Substantial Amendment for the Community Development Block Grant—Disaster Recovery; 2012 Allocation

[44 Pa.B. 1330]
[Saturday, March 8, 2014]

 A public comment period will be held to review the proposed substantial amendment to the Commonwealth for Fiscal Year 2012 Community Development Block Grant—Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds. The public comment period is from March 10, 2014, through March 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 of Community and Economic Development (Department). An Action Plan for these funds was finalized and submitted to HUD on July 23, 2012. As the needs for disaster relief in the various areas of funding have changed due to submission of applications for assistance by affected municipalities, changes need to be made to those areas in the original Action Plan. 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 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 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 March 21, 2014.

 Persons who would like to provide written comment on the draft Action Plan may send those comments electronically to RA-DCEDcdbg& 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 March 18, 2014.
