RESCHEDULED - CDBG & HOME Community Meeting #2
Tuesday, May 9, 2023
This meeting includes discussion and public feedback on the draft Annual Action Plan.
Community development is a process where community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems. Malden addresses a range of community needs through programs that fund affordable housing, home rehabilitation, social services for low- and moderate-income residents, and physical improvements to the City's parks, public facilities, and infrastructure. OSPCD manages several community development programs, including the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and the North Suburban Consortium's HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) program.
Before receiving federal funds for the CDBG and HOME programs, the City of Malden develops a five-year strategic plan called the Consolidated Plan that identifies the City's community development needs and goals. For each year during the Consolidated Plan, the City submits an Annual Action Plan to HUD detailing the specific programs, activities, and budget it will use to achieve Consolidated Plan objectives. This meeting includes discussion and public feedback on the Annual Action Plan.
