Sussex County Council, in cooperation with Delaware State Housing Authority, will hold a public hearing so that all citizens can have an opportunity to participate in the development of an application to the State of Delaware Community Development Block Grant Program, for a grant under the provisions of the Community Development Act of 1977. The primary objective of the Community Development Program is the development of viable urban communities, including decent housing and a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income. It is also a primary objective to alleviate physical and economic distress through the stimulation of private investment and community revitalization in areas of population out-migration or a stagnating or declining tax base.

In accordance with the Section 106 Review Process established by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended, comments are especially encouraged from interested agencies and individuals with respect to undertakings that may affect historic properties of significance to such agencies and individuals.

The hearing will be held in the Council Chambers, Administrative Offices Building, #2 The Circle, Georgetown, Delaware on Tuesday, February 2, 2016 at 10:15 a.m. A status report for FY-15 will also be included. For more information, contact Brad D. Whaley, Director of Community Development & Housing at 855-7777.
