The purpose of the Public Hearing is to discuss, in general, the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs of both Centre County and Bellefonte Borough, the current and future needs of both the County and the Borough’s Low/Moderate Income Residents, performance under the previously funded CDBG Program years, and to discuss the required Three – Year Community Development Plans of both organizations.

Centre County is expected to receive an allocation of $300,000, of Ffy 2019 CDBG funds from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Bellefonte Borough anticipates the receipt of $100,000.  At least 70% of the available funding must be used for activities which benefit low and moderate income persons both throughout Centre County and in the Borough.  It is anticipated that the combined application submission deadline will be in September of this year. 

The following types of activities may be eligible for funding under the CDBG Program: water and sewer line replacement and improvements; housing rehabilitation; construction of affordable housing;

construction/reconstruction of public/community facilities; recreational facilities; public services that are new or provide quantifiable increases in the delivery of services; street improvements; historic

preservation; removal of architectural barriers; code enforcement; economic development; acquisition and relocation; clearance and demolition; and general administration, planning, audit if required, and

preparation of the CDBG application.

If Centre County or Bellefonte Borough would undertake activities that result in the displacement of families or individuals, then Centre County’s policy for minimizing such displacement would be in effect.  All interested citizens are encouraged to attend and will be offered the opportunity to give oral testimony at the Public Hearing and/or to present written comments concerning the needs of the Community, proposed CDBG Program activities, the prior use of CDBG funds, as well as the CDBG Program in general.  Written proposals and comments may be submitted to the Centre County Planning and Community Development Office, 420 Holmes St, Bellefonte PA, or email: mmilliron@centrecountypa.gov by August 1st, 2019.
