Consolidated Plan Public Hearings

The Dutchess County Department of Planning and Development and the City of Poughkeepsie Office of Social Development are in the process of preparing the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan.  The City and County complete a joint plan for submission to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.  This Plan establishes the priorities for the allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) Program funds.  The County and City anticipate receiving $15 million dollars through these programs over the next five years. 

Two public hearings will be held to give the public and interested agencies an opportunity to comment on the County and City’s needs and priorities as they relate to housing and community development.  The hearings will be held on:
