2022 Program Year ANNUAL ACTION PLAN

Aviso de audiencias publicas, ciudad de Bristol, Virginia programa de bloque de desarrollo de la

comunidad y programa inicial.

A public hearing will be held in the Bristol Virginia City Council chambers at 6:00 p.m. on

Tuesday, March 22, 2022 to give citizens an opportunity to comment on the housing and

community development needs of Bristol, Virginia, and how CDBG and HOME funds should be

spent for the next fiscal year. The Department of Housing & Urban Development has not

announced City funding at this time. The City expects to receive CDBG entitlement in the

approximate amount of $270,000 (average allocation). The City also expects to receive

additional funding through the Northeast Tennessee/Virginia HOME Consortium. This amount

has not been determined. A 30-day comment period will begin on March 22, 2022 and end on

April 22, 2022.

At least 70% of the total funds must benefit low and moderate-income persons. In order to

qualify for CDBG funding, each activity must first be eligible then must also qualify as meeting

one of three national objectives of the program: benefiting low and moderate income persons;

aiding in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight; or meeting other community

development needs having particular urgency because of existing threat to the health or

welfare of the community, and other financial resources not available to meet such needs

(natural disaster, fire, tornado, etc.). The City is currently requesting applications from public

service agencies and organizations for public service activities and other specific project

activities that meet one of the three national objectives. Any proposal/activity that fails to meet

the applicable criteria cannot be funded with CDBG funds. A list of eligible activities and any

further information may be obtained from the Community Development Specialist, Ellen

Tolton, at the Office of Community Development & Planning, City Hall, 300 Lee Street, Bristol

VA 24201, Phone: 276-645-7473 (TDD) 276-645-7289. Submission of an application for funding

does not guarantee full or partial project funding.

Citizens are asked to submit written or oral comments to the Community Development

Specialist using the above information prior to the end of the public comment period. If an

interpreter or special accommodations are required, please contact the CDP Office at least

three days prior to the hearing.

Se pide a los ciudadanos que envíen comentarios escritos o orales al Coordinador del CDBG

utilizando la información anterior antes del final del período de comentarios públicos. Si se

requiere un intérprete o alojamiento especial, por favor comuníquese con la Oficina del CDP al

menos 3 días antes de la audiencia.
