The City of Fargo is requesting public input and proposals for its 2024 Community Development & Housing Action Plan. This plan allocates annual entitlement funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which are distributed through The City’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) programs. The primary purpose of these funds is to benefit low and moderate income individuals and households.
The goals of the plan are established in the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan and focus on affordable housing, ending and preventing homelessness, neighborhood improvements and poverty reduction. Existing plans are available on The City of Fargo website or by request.
The Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) period runs from Nov. 15 through Dec. 6, 2023, with proposals due no later than 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 6, 2023. All proposals must be submitted electronically. Full instructions, NOFO, application materials, eligibility requirements and the submission links are located online at The City of Fargo website. All proposals will be evaluated based on low to moderate income benefit, project readiness, cost reasonableness and impact, activity management, experience, past performance and current resources.
The public is encouraged to submit comments and suggestions on the plan by Dec. 6, 2023, via email, telephone or during the virtual public input meeting. The virtual public input meeting will begin at noon on Nov. 30, 2023. Residents can access the meeting by using the online link at https://meet.goto.com/791989845 or by calling 571.317.3112 and using access code 791.989.845.
