The City of Mission will conduct several public hearings to solicit comments from interested residents and agencies for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. The City is expecting to receive notification of the proposed fiscal year 2019 CDBG allocation, which is anticipated to be $960,474. Comments received will be considered for preparation of the City of Mission’s Annual Action Plan FY 2019-2020. Interested parties are encouraged to attend and make their views known. These funds can be utilized for activities benefiting low/moderate income areas and/or persons. We are accepting project applications for CDBG funds for Fiscal Year 2019 (October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020).
