Plan outlines local spending plan for $345K in federal funding 

The city of Marysville has opened its Community Development Block Grant Draft Annual Action Plan for Program Year 2021 for public review and comment. The draft plan provides specific housing and community development actions for 2021 in alignment with the adopted 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan. 

The city expects to receive $345,000 in federal funds in 2021 under the CDBG program. The draft plan recommends using those funds to assist senior and special-needs households with housing projects that allow them to stay in their homes; provide housing and services to individuals and families experiencing or at risk of homelessness; addressing service gaps in public facilities; and providing meals to low-income senior citizens, disabled adults, and low-income school-aged children. 

Public review and comment is now open. Comments must be in writing and must be received no later than 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 1. Comments received in writing will considered by the Citizen Advisory Committee for Housing and Community Development before forwarding a recommendation to the City Council. A summary of and response to any comments received will be included in the final Annual Action Plan.
