Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

Review Plans & Reports

In order to develop sustainable programming, the Department of Community and Economic Development relies on citizen participation. We provide citizens with the opportunity to review our Action Plan and Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). The department also periodically posts Public Hearing notices and information on public services requests for funding.

Citizens are encouraged to comment or provide feedback on any document created for the CDBG program during open public comment periods.  Please note that comments are accepted at any point during the program year, but comments outside the specific comment period may not be incorporated into any documents until the following program year. 

All comments can be directed to Mr. Jonathan Kerns, Community Development Manger, at or (301) 739-8577 ext. 134.
