The City of Fort Pierce anticipates the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will allocate approximately $550,000 to the City for the 2018-2019 program year through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.
The City of Fort Pierce is in the process of developing its 2018-2019 Annual Action Plan to detail the proposed use of the CDBG funds during the program year, which begins October 1, 2018 and ends September 30, 2019.
The Action Plan represents Year #3 of the 2016-2020 5-Year Consolidated Plan previously reviewed by citizens and approved by the City Commission. The Plan will outline issues and opportunities facing Fort Pierce and address matters such as infrastructure, public and assisted housing and economic and community development.
