Public Hearings for the Proposed Amended Federal FY 2018 and the Proposed Federal FY2019 CDBG Method of Distribution

The State of Georgia's Department of Community Affairs (DCA) is proposing to amend its current Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2018/State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2019 Method of Distribution (MOD) and to propose a new FFY 2019/SFY 2020 MOD for the State's Non-Entitlement Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs. The MOD affects the CDBG Annual Competition, the CDBG Employment Incentive Program (EIP), the CDBG Redevelopment Fund (RDF) program, the Immediate Threat and Danger (ITAD) Program, and the 108 Loan Guarantee program. Amendments to the MOD require U.S Housing and Urban Development (HUD) approval prior to enactment. The draft of the amended FFY 2018 and the proposed FFY 2019 MODs may be found as documents detailed below.

The public may contact DCA directly at (404) 679-0594 or through the TDD line at (404) 679-4915 to receive a written copy of the amended Method of Distribution.

Comments by the public regarding the amended and proposed MODs will be accepted for a period of review and consideration, ending 5:00 p.m., December 9, 2018.  The State encourages citizens and other interested parties to review the amended FFY 2018 and the proposed FFY 2019 MODs and to submit comments to or to:
