Public Forums – HUD Consolidated Plan 2014 - Times & Locations

5/16/2013

Biddeford, Bangor, Augusta, Presque Isle

MaineHousing and the Maine Office of Community Development invite you to attend our public forums as we develop the State’s 2014 Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan outlines the administration and distribution of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds Maine receives each year from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The forums are designed to gather information and ideas from interested parties about housing and community development needs throughout the state and any impediments to fair housing in the state, and to review potential program changes.

These forums are an excellent opportunity to tell us what you think about: • The programs offered by MaineHousing & DECD. • What the State’s housing and community development priorities should be. • How MaineHousing & DECD can better serve your area and your needs. Please join us. We want to hear what you have to say.
