Invitation for Public Comment on Seminole County’s One Year Action Plan (2017 2018)

Seminole County is a federal grant recipient through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These grant funds include the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program, and the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program. These programs assist lower income and homeless residents of the County.

The Proposed One-Year Action Plan represents the efforts and solicitation of ideas from County staff, County residents, local organizations, social service providers, and a Countywide Public Hearing.  The County also used its Five-Year Consolidated Plan to design activities and projects in conformance with the goals established therein. Based on this information and analysis, the County developed the 2017-2018 One-Year Action Plan.

There will be a 30-day public comment period for this One-Year Action Plan. Comments will be received at the Seminole County Community Development Division until 5:00 p.m., Monday, July 24, 2017. During this period, the Action Plan will be in draft form and is available for public review at the link below and in the Community Development office located in the Reflections Plaza at 534 W. Lake Mary Boulevard, Sanford, FL 32773. Public comments will be forwarded to the Board of County Commissioners prior to their July 25, 2017 meeting for approval of the 2017-2018 One-Year Action Plan.
