Public Notice - Citizen Participation Plan Revision
The North Dakota Department of Commerce, Division of Community Services and North Dakota Housing Finance Agency seek public comment to revision of the North Dakota Citizen Participation Plan (CCP).
The CCP sets forth the State of North Dakota’s policies and procedures for citizen participation in the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development’s consolidated planning process including development of the State’s Consolidated Plan, Annual Action Plan, and the allocation plans for the following programs: HOME Investment Partnerships, Community Development Block Grant, National Housing Trust Fund, and Emergency Solutions Grant.
The objective of the CCP is to ensure that the citizens of North Dakota, particularly persons with low and moderate incomes, persons living in slum and blighted areas, and persons or units of local government with urgent housing needs, housing agencies, or other interested parties are provided with the opportunity to participation in the planning and preparation of the state’s plans.
The draft CCP will be available online at ndgov.link/ConsolidatedPlan from Dec. 9-27, 2022. Written comments should be submitted to the attention of Maria Effertz at P.O. Box 2057, Bismarck, ND 58502-2057, or email@example.com by 5:00 p.m., CT, on Dec. 27, 2022.
For alternate formats of the CCP and other requests for assistance, contact Maria Effertz at 701-328-5300, 711 (TTY or voice) or 800-435-8590 (Spanish).
