County Seeking Public Input
New City, NY, – Rockland County Executive Ed Day and Office of Community Development Assistant Director Maria Frank announce two public meetings related to the 2020 – 2024 Rockland County Consolidated Plan which must be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD).
“We need the opinion of housing and service providers and our residents to help guide the housing and community development priorities for Rockland,” said County Executive Day. “Please take a few minutes of your day to complete the survey or virtually attend one of the meetings.”
As a recipient of Federal entitlement grant funds, Rockland County is required to submit a Consolidated Plan to HUD every five years. The Consolidated Plan describes the County’s community development priorities and multi-year goals, which are informed by an assessment of housing and community development needs and an analysis of housing and economic market conditions and available resources.
The Rockland County Office of Community Development is the overall administrative agent for the HUD Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), Rockland County Supportive Housing Programs and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) programs for the County.
