Wyo agencies seek public comment on HUD funds usage

A public meeting about how U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds are used in Wyoming will be held at 3 p.m. on May 4 in the Wyoming Business Council office located at 214 W. 15th St. in Cheyenne.

Representatives from the Business Council, the Wyoming Community Development Authority, the Wyoming Department of Health and the Wyoming Department of Family Services will tell the public about each of the HUD programs and funding opportunities.

HUD requires an Annual Action Plan that delineates how funds will be spent. The state is preparing a 2017 draft action plan. The public is invited to provide feedback on community needs and priorities for consideration in the 2017 Annual Action Plan following the May 4 meeting.

The Annual Action Plan applies to the Community Development Block Grant, the HOME Investment Partnerships, the Continuum of Care, the Housing for Persons with AIDS and the Emergency Solutions Grant programs.

Additional topics include the method for, and geographic distribution of, funds; activities the state plans to undertake to address housing, homelessness and other special-needs activities and non-housing community and economic development activities.

The public is invited to attend in person or online through GoToMeeting. To submit written comments, questions or receive information on registering for the webinar, call Stephanie Horton at 307-777-2813 or email her at stephanie.horton@wyo.gov. People requiring special formatting, assistance or non-English accommodations can contact Horton to request alternative formats. Wyoming Relay Service is also available during regular business hours by dialing 711.
