Community Development Block Grant Citizens Advisory Task Force

 
◊  Bylaws 
 

Responsibility:
The Community Development Block Grant Program works to ensure decent affordable housing, to provide services to the most vulnerable in our community and to create jobs through the expansion and retention of businesses. Citizen participation by persons of low or moderate income, is an integral part of the process.

The purpose of the Citizen's Advisory Task Force (CATF) is to provide input on all phases of the Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program process. CATF meets to discuss community needs and make recommendations as to the program area and activities that should be considered when drafting the grant application and prior to the public hearings. Prior to submitting the grant application, one public hearing is held to discuss community needs and a second public hearing is held to discuss the proposed CDBG application, including the specific proposed activities and the funding being requested. The CATF also provides input during the implementation of any grants received by Leon County.
