Public Hearing on CDBG Grant

The City of Staunton has applied for and expects to receive funds through the FY 2019 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the approximate amount of $354,433. The City expects to receive CDBG grant funds in this approximate amount annually.

As part of the grant process, the City has prepared a Citizen Participation Plan (CPP) to encourage citizen input and outline the City's responsibilities in the administration of the grant funds. 

The City will conduct a public needs hearing at 7 p.m., June 4 in Montgomery Hall Park's activity room to gather information and input from residents concerning housing and community development needs in the City over the next five years. The information provided during the public hearing will help to inform the City in the development of its five-year and annual action plans for the grant funds and determine potential grant-eligible activities. Comments on the Citizen Participation Plan will also be heard during the hearing.

The City will conduct a second public hearing on the five-year and annual action plans once they are completed and on display for public viewing for 30 days. The City will advertise the second public hearing date when it becomes available.

If you plan to attend the hearings and have special needs requirements, please contact the City of Staunton’s Clerk of Council at simmonssf@ci.staunton.va.us or 540.332.3810. The City’s TDD number is 540.332.3968.
