NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING:  On Wednesday, April 15, at 10:00 a.m., the City of Long Beach Community Development Advisory Commission (CDAC) will conduct a Public Hearing in the City Council Chambers in City Hall at 333 West Ocean Boulevard, Long Beach.

 The City of Long Beach is seeking public input on a proposed Amendment to its 2008-2009 Action Plan, the fourth annual implementation plan under the five-year 2005-2010 Consolidated Plan (Consolidated Plan).  The Plan is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to assess community needs and to prioritize the use of HUD grant funds received by the City to address identified needs by principally benefiting low income Long Beach residents.

 The City is proposing to amend the Action Plan in order to incorporate the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.  Congress has designated $1.5 billion for communities to provide financial assistance and services to either prevent individuals and families from becoming homeless or help those who are experiencing homelessness to be quickly re-housed and stabilized.  

Starting April 3, 2009 copies of the draft Action Plan Amendment will posted on the City's web page, . for fifteen day public comment period.

By April 22, 2009 all public comments should be submitted to Susan Price,

All public comments will be included in the final proposed Action Plan Amendment as a condition of the City Council's final approval, tentatively scheduled for  May 5th, 2009.
