The City of Piqua intends to apply to the Ohio Development Services Agency (ODSA) for funding under the Program Year 2019 Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Community Development Allocation; a federally funded program administered by the State of Ohio. The City of Piqua is eligible for $150,000 of CDBG Community Development Allocation Program funding; provided the City meets applicable program requirements. On February 28, 2019 the City conducted its first public hearing to inform citizens about the entire CDBG program, how funds may be used, what activities are eligible, and other important program requirements.
Based on both citizen input and local officials’ assessments of the City’s needs, the City of Piqua is looking at applying for the CDBG Community Allocation Program and the Neighborhood Revitalization Program for the Program Year 2019 Grant Cycle.
The City is eligible for $150,000 for the Community Allocation Program and up to $500,000 for the Neighborhood Revitalization Program.
This second of two required public hearings will be held on Thursday, June 6, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. in the City Commission Chambers at the Municipal Government Complex, 201 West Water Street, Piqua, Ohio to give citizens an adequate opportunity to review and comment on the City’s proposed CDBG Application, before the City submits its application to the Ohio Development Services Agency. The application deadline is June 16, 2019.
Citizens are encouraged to attend this public hearing on June 6, 2019 to express their views and comments on the City’s proposed CDBG Community Development Allocation and Neighborhood Revitalization Application.
