Barnstable to Update Community Development Block Grant Program

Barnstable Town Hall.

HYANNIS – The town of Barnstable is releasing updated drafts of the 2018 Action Plan and Citizens Participation Plan for the Community Development Block Grant Program.

Beginning tomorrow, the drafts will be available on the town website at and in the Planning and Development Department.

The plans serve as the planning and strategic documents for the town’s CDBG program, which is funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Estimated funding for the program year, which runs from July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019, is $285,000 plus any carryover.

The town is seeking public comment on the updated plans through May 7.

The draft Action Plan outlines funding priorities for the upcoming year, and the Citizens Participation Plan describes the public process. Funding levels included in the drafts are estimates and are subject to change.

Comments may be submitted in writing to: Kathleen Girouard, Planning and Development Department, 367 Main Street, 3rd Floor, Hyannis, MA 02601; or by emailing with “CDBG Comments” in the subject line.

The comments will be included in the final plans submitted to HUD.
