The Town of Arlington’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program Year 47 (July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022) Draft Annual Action Plan is now available at www.arlingtonma.gov/cdbg. The Department of Planning and Community Development invites public review and comment prior to the submission of the Annual Action Plan to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In order to receive CDBG funds, the Annual Action Plan must be consistent with the primary objective of Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, which is to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income.
The draft Annual Action Plan was created based upon the goals and objectives outlined in the Town’s 5-Year Consolidated Plan. The Town expects to receive approximately $1,090,533 in new grant funds from HUD for CDBG Program Year 47. Based on the requests for funds, monies will be allocated for Affordable Housing; Economic Development; Parks, Public Facilities, & Infrastructure; Public Services; and Planning and Administration. A budget, based on these recommendations, will be presented to Town Meeting.
