Public Hearing Notice: 2020 CDBG Applications

Please take notice that applications for federal funds under HUD’s 2020 Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) are now available from the Montclair Township Department of Planning & Community Development. According to Planning Director Janice Talley, Montclair anticipates receiving $320,000 in Community Development Block Grant funds in the 2020 program year. This fund is largely used for capital projects within eligible areas of the Township. Some of the funds are made available to non-profit organizations whose projects benefit primarily persons of low and moderate income such as substance abuse counseling and youth programs.

Completed applications are due in the Montclair Planning Department by noon on Friday, November 22.

Take further notice that a public hearing for the 2020 application cycle has been scheduled by the Township Council for Tuesday, December 3, at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber in the Municipal Building, 205 Claremont Avenue, Montclair, New Jersey, to solicit public comment. Applicants requesting $10,000 or more in funding must present their request at the public hearing. Those interested in addressing the Council as to how and where the grant money should be allocated are encouraged to attend.
