Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
The Agawam Planning and Community Development Department will conduct a public hearing regarding their ongoing Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). The hearing will be digital/remote meeting held 6:30 PM on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.
The primary purpose of the hearing will be to discuss a proposed amendment to Agawam’s FY 2019 CDBG Program. Projects currently being funded through this grant include improvements to Brady Village and Microenterprise Assistance. The Brady Village project is now substantially complete and under the estimated budget. Also, other sources of funds are now available for Microenterprise Assistance. Therefore, Agawam is considering reprogramming CDBG funds to resurrect a comprehensive infrastructure planning study for North Agawam. The planning study was originally funded as part of this grant; however, funds were redirected in support to Microenterprise Assistance. As funding allows, additional housing rehabilitation services including Aging in Place, will also be considered as part of this proposed amendment.
Any person or organization having questions or comments concerning the CDBG program and ongoing activities will have an opportunity to be heard. Persons who require special accommodations should contact the Agawam Planning and Community Development Department prior to the hearing date at (413)786-0400.
This meeting will be conducted remotely through Zoom; an online audio web media conferencing platform.
