August 18, 2022 - Notice is hereby given by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs of the amending of the FFY2022 for the State of Georgia Community Development Block Grant Method of Distribution. The proposed amendment involves modifications to the allocation of funds and the scope of the Innovative Grant Program Set-Aside. The purpose of the public hearing is to receive citizen comments on the proposed amendment.
