The period from April 5, 2019 through May 5, 2019 will be reserved as a public comment period in which citizens may forward written comments, suggestions, or evaluations on the City's Proposed Annual Plan for Program Year 45 (PY 45) to the Office of Community Development, Room 218, City Hall, Meriden, CT 06450. All comments received will be forwarded to the City Council prior to its anticipated May 6, 2019 regular meeting when approval and authorization of the Annual Plan of Community Development Objectives and Use of Funds for PY 45 will be made. The City will submit the Annual Plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on or around May 17, 2019 for its approval. Anyone desiring to examine copies of the Draft PY 45 Annual Plan may do so during normal working hours at Room 218 at Meriden City Hall, or at any time on the City website, www.meridenct.gov, or at the link below. Please note that allocations listed in the draft PY 45 Annual Plan are subject to change prior to adoption by City Council. Also, any changes in formula allocation levels from HUD after Council adoption will result in award amounts being altered in accordance with the City’s Contingency Plan for Annual Action Plan Allocation.
