The purpose of this public hearing is to present the FY 2017 Allegheny County Annual Action Plan. The FY 2017 Annual Action Plan lists the proposed projects for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) funds. Allegheny County has not received its 2017 Federal allocation amounts from the U. S.

Proposed projects and funding may change should the 2017 Federal grant amounts be increased or decreased by HUD. The FY 2017 Annual Action Plan is scheduled to be submitted to the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on or before May 15, 2017. The submission date may change based upon receiving HUD’s 2017 funding allocation notice.
