The purpose of the hearing is to review community development and housing needs, inform citizens of the availability of funds and eligible uses of the State Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), and receive comments on proposed activities, particularly from low- and moderate-income persons and persons residing in Pacific County. Up to $1.5 million may be available to Pacific County on a statewide competitive basis to fund public facility, community facility, economic development and affordable housing projects that principally benefit low- and moderate-income persons.

The Board will receive comment on any applications received, ensure broad-based support for the projects, listen and receive public input on the formal requests and advise the public of the grievance procedure.

Comments regarding this proposal may be submitted during the public hearing or in writing to Board of Pacific County Commissioners, P.O. Box 187, South Bend, WA 98586.
