FY2024 Annual Action Plan

FY2024 ANNUAL ACTION PLAN 

City of New Bedford  |  Office of Housing & Community Development

The Annual Action Plan is a one-year plan that explains and discusses available federal block grant funding (Community Development Block Grant, Emergency Solutions Grant and HOME Program funding) that the city receives as an entitlement community. The FY24 Annual Action Plan addresses how the funding will be used to fulfill Consolidated Plan priorities. (The city’s current Consolidated Plan is a five-year document that identifies community needs and spending priorities for FY2020-FY2024.) The FY24 Annual Action Plan represents the fifth year of the five-year Consolidated Plan.

Annual Action Plan Community Forums (Public Meetings)

As part of its Annual Action Plan process, the City’s Office of Housing & Community Development (OHCD) conducted two public meetings (January 9th and January 10th 2024) where those attending learned about the federal funding that the city receives as an entitlement community and hear ideas from the community about how these funds could be used to serve the needs of New Bedford residents, particularly those of low and moderate incomes, over the coming fiscal year.

                                                                                THE APPLICATION PERIOD IS NOW CLOSED.

This year for the first time, applications for CDBG and for ESG funding were presented in an online format. As part of this process, a CDBG and ESG Technical Assistance Workshop was conducted virtually via Zoom. A recording of that workshop is presented below.
