NOTICE OF CITY OF TIFFIN, OHIO FY2020 COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT PROGRAM GENERAL PUBLIC HEARING NO. 1

The City of Tiffin intends to apply to the Ohio Development Services Agency for funding under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Small Cities Program, a federally funded program administered by the state.  The City of Tiffin is eligible for approximately $150,000 for Fiscal Year 2020 CDBG funding, providing the allocation is similar to FY2018 and that the City of Tiffin meets applicable program requirements.

The first of two public hearings will be held on May 26 at 7pm as an online video call. The meeting will provide citizens with pertinent information about the CDBG program requirements.  The CDBG program can fund a broad range of activities including economic development projects, street, water supply, drainage and sanitary sewer improvements, park acquisition and improvements, demolition of unsafe structures, rehabilitation of housing and neighborhood facilities, and downtown revitalization.  The activities must be designed to primarily benefit low and moderate income (LMI) persons or aid in the prevention or elimination of slums and blight.
