DECD Seeks Comment on CDBG Action Plan


The public may comment and propose revisions through June 24 on the Department of Economic and Community Development’s 2008 Action Plan for the Community Development Block Grant (CDGB) Recovery Program. The program provides about $3.6 million under Titel XII of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. A copy of ARRA can be found here.

The purpose of the funding is to provide a supplemental appropriation for DBG eligible activities to address current economic conditions. The state's CDBG-R funding is targeted for activities such as acquisition, rehabilitation and resale of foreclosed properties and related infrastructure projects that will spur further economic investment, increased energy efficiency and job creation or retention.

A copy of the proposed amendment can be found here. Written comments may be sent to W. Michael Regan, Community Development Administrator, Office of Strategy and Policy, DECD, 505 Hudson Street, Hartford, CT 06106-7106 or emailed to
