The state of North Dakota will conduct public hearings throughout the month of February 2020 to receive input on housing and non-housing community development needs, for the development of the state’s 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan and the 2020 Action Plan.
The Consolidated Plan, required by the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), describes the state’s demographic characteristics; housing inventory, housing needs primarily for persons of low and moderate income, the homeless and special needs persons; and the state’s housing and non-housing priority needs.The Plan also includes five-year goals for housing and non-housing needs, a description of available resources, and a description of how certain resources will be delivered. The emphasis of the plan is to benefit low- and moderate-income persons.
In addition, the plan contains the 2020 Action Plan that serves as the state’s grant application for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME, Housing Trust Fund (HTF) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs. The Action Plan contains the program descriptions that describe how these programs will be delivered in the year 2020.
The public is encouraged to attend the public hearings to learn about the plan and to provide ideas for its development. At a later date, the public will be invited to obtain a copy of the draft plan and to provide written comments.
