Second Substantial Amendment to the 2014 Action Plan; Public Meeting

[45 Pa.B. 4007]
[Saturday, July 25, 2015]

 The Department of Community and Economic Development (Department) is amending the Commonwealth's 2014 Action Plan for a second time. The Action Plan is the annual application to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for Federal funds administered by the Commonwealth. Annually the Department prepares the Action Plan which outlines the method of distribution for Federal funding received by the Department. This Federal funding includes the HOME program. An Action Plan for these funds was finalized and submitted to HUD on July 7, 2014, and an amendment was submitted to HUD on July 1, 2015. The Department is proposing changes to the Method of Distribution for HOME which, according to the Pennsylvania Citizen Participation Plan for the Consolidated Plan, constitute a significant change in the distribution of funds under the HOME program and thus necessitate a substantial amendment to the original Action Plan.

 Interested persons may view the substantial amendment at or request a copy following the same procedures as listed under Written Comments.

Public Meeting

 The public meeting for the substantial amendment will be conducted electronically by means of the Internet on Wednesday, July 29, 2015. Access to the discussion by means of the Internet will occur between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. This more widely available computer access will replace the onsite public meeting. The format will be more accessible than an in-person meeting because those who wish to make comment or discuss policy may participate directly from their electronic device or from a computer located at their public library.

 Any individual or organization may give testimony or comments by means of the web about the proposed changes to the HOME program's Method of Distribution for 2014 funding. The Commonwealth encourages public participation in this process.

 Anyone who wants to participate must register in advance. Contact Megan L. Snyder at (717) 720-7404 to receive registration instructions for the web meeting at least 24 hours prior to the meeting date. During the meeting, if support is required, call (717) 787-5327. The meeting will be shortened if there is no one to testify or there is minimal response.

 Anyone who has a disability or limited English proficiency and wishes to participate in the public meeting should contact Megan L. Snyder, Department of Community and Economic Development, Commonwealth Keystone Building, 400 North Street, 4th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17120-0225, (717) 720-7404 or TDD at (717) 346-0308 to discuss how the Department can accommodate their needs.
