The Henry County Community Development Department will host a series of Needs Assessment meetings for the purpose of determining the nature and types of assistance needed to address priority needs in Henry County including the cities of Hampton, Locust Grove, McDonough and Stockbridge.
The meetings shall address the following topics:
• Estimated amount of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program entitlement funds
• Eligible uses for CDBG funds
• Description of current CDBG assisted activities, completed activities and accomplishments
• The 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan
Henry County is a recipient of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As a prerequisite to receiving funds under HUD’s formula grant programs, Henry County is required to submit a Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan. The Consolidated Plan being developed is proposed for Fiscal Years (FYs) 2020-2024. The five (5) year period, will begin July 1, 2020 and end June 30, 2024. The proposed Consolidated Plan will provide policy direction concerning the county’s CDBG funding decisions over the five (5) year period. The associated Annual Action Plan is for FY 2020, July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021.
As part of the development of the Consolidated and Annual Action Plans, we are seeking to identify community development within the County. Available on the County’s website residents and stakeholders will find two (2) Needs Assessment forms. One is intended to be completed by agencies and organizations, such as service providers; the other is intended for individuals and/or households. Both documents are PDF fillable, allowing the respondent to type directly into the form. Completed forms can be returned via email, U.S. Postal Services or hand delivery. We are requesting that completed forms be returned by Friday, March 27, 2020.
