HENDERSON, Ky. -- The City of Henderson will hold four public hearings later this month to solicit from citizens and local service agencies ideas for the expenditure of Community Development Block Grant funds in the next fiscal year.
The City is in the process of preparing the 2017-2018 Action Plan that will identify the housing, living environment and economic needs of low-income citizens with the City.
The City expects to receive approximately $212,949 in the fiscal year starting July1 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. These funds may be expended for a wide range of activities, but every activity must either benefit low-income persons or address a slum and blight condition.
Citizens are encouraged to make known to the City any ideas/projects that should be considered. Any such comments/ideas may be submitted at the publics hearings, via mail to the City of Henderson Community Development Department, P.O. Box 716, Henderson, Ky. 42419-0716, (270) 831-1277 or via email to email@example.com on or before 6 p.m. on March 30.
All meeting rooms are accessible to the disabled. The City does not discrimate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability. Persons seeking more information or any disabled citizen needing reasonable accommodations or a language interpreter in order to participate in the citizen review process should contact Tammy Willett at (270) 831-1277 (TDD# 800-247-2510 for the hearing impaired.)
