2024-25 Annual Action Plan
The City of White Plains (“the City”) Department of Planning, Community Development (“CD”) Program, is soliciting public input on the development of the 2024-2025 Annual Action Plan. White Plains is a designated U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) entitlement community and is required to develop an Action Plan annually. The Annual Action Plan describes the City’s proposed use of approximately $850,000 in projected federal funds for FY 2024-25 under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. Actual funding depends upon official notification from HUD. The primary objective of the CDBG program is the development of viable urban communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low- and moderate-income.
The City will release the public service program application for FY 2024-2025 CDBG funds on Monday, December 4, 2023 and will accept applications until 4:00 pm on Friday, January 12, 2024. Applicants are required to attend a Virtual Pre-Application Workshop on Wednesday, December 6, 2023 at 1:00 pm or on Friday, December 8, 2023 at 11:00 am. Grant writers and administrators should attend the workshop. The same content will be presented at both sessions - only attend one. Instructions to register for the virtual workshop are posted on the City's website at cityofwhiteplains.com/CommunityDevelopment.
If you have difficulty with registering, do not hesitate to contact the Community Development Program by email at CommunityDevelopment@whiteplainsny.gov or by phone at (914) 422-1300.
