Input on Local Community Development Needs

Notice is hereby given that the Town Council of the Town of Morehead City will conduct a public hearing on June 11, 2019 at 5:30 pm, or as soon thereafter as the agenda will allow, to solicit public input on local community development needs in relation to Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding for a project in the community at the Municipal Building located at:
202 South 8th Street
Morehead City, NC 28557

CDBG-NR Application

In July 2019, the Town of Morehead City will submit a CDBG-NR application to the North Carolina Department of Commerce for funds to assist low-and-moderate income households who reside within Morehead City's jurisdiction. Citizens will also be given the opportunity to provide oral and written comment on the Town's use of CDBG funds.

All project activities will serve households with incomes at or below 80% of the Town's median income for appropriate household size. The proposed budget includes the following housing-related CDBG activities:

  • Rehabilitation $675,000
  • Program Administration $ 75,000
  • Total Project Budget $750,000

The Town will make every effort to minimize displacement; however, all applicable requirements of 49CFR24 and 24CFR570 related to the proposed rehabilitation and reconstruction activities will be implemented, and temporary relocation assistance will be available to owners who are displaced from their residences during construction activity.
