Public Hearing - 2023 CDBG-DR Action Plan


PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) will hold two (2) public hearings at 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM on Thursday, May 2, 2024, at the Historic City Hall located at 201 E. Solomon Street, Griffin, GA 30223 in a room that will be noted at the time of the hearing.

The purpose of the hearings is to provide an opportunity for public engagement regarding the $12,595,000 awarded to Georgia by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds for activities in the Presidentially Declared Disaster areas affected by the January 2023 tornadoes (DR 4685).

Through coordinated efforts with the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS) and Local Governments, DCA is in the process of drafting a Public Action Plan.  The Public Action Plan will identify the intended use of the CDBG-DR funds and is due to HUD on May 31, 2024.

DCA will take input from citizens at each of the two (2) public hearings.  Any comments, both written and oral, will be recorded and submitted in the Action Plan.  All comments will be considered but may not ultimately affect programmatic decisions.

The Georgia Department of Community Affairs, the administrator of the CDBG-DR funding, is committed to providing all persons with equal access to its services, programs, activities, education, and employment regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, disability, or age.  For reasonable accommodation, hearing impairment assistance, or language access assistance, please contact by April 24, 2024.  Translation of the notice and interpretation services for this event are available upon request.
