Rulemaking Process

Each year OCD is required to undertake a CDBG rule making process which conforms to HUD and the State Administrative Procedures Act. This process includes joint public forums with MaineHousing, meetings and formal public hearings. Schedules for all public forums will be posted on this website as needed. Public comments are solicited and used in determining potential changes in the CDBG program. The final rule is known as the CDBG Program Statement which is reviewed by the Maine Attorney General's Office with final approval resting with HUD.
