The Town of Summerville is designated as an entitlement community by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and as such is eligible to receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program funds annually.  To receive these funds, the Town must develop and submit a Consolidated Plan every five years and an AAP for each year of the plan.  The PY 2022 AAP projects and activities were developed to further accomplish the goals set in the Town’s 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan. The proposed activities in the plan are intended to benefit low- to moderate-income residents in Summerville.  PY 2022 begins on July 1, 2022 and ends on June 30, 2023.

The Town of Summerville has estimated it will receive $316,505 in PY 2022 CDBG funds based on the prior year allocation.  The proposed AAP plan provides $63,301 (20%) towards admin and $47,476 (15%) towards public services under CDBG grant guidelines and $205,728 (65%) towards public facility and infrastructure improvements. The final PY 2022 CDBG grant allocation has not been announced yet, however the Town will use the percentages budgeted for the final grant allocation in the AAP regardless of the final amount announced.

PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD: A draft of the PY 2022 AAP will be available for public comment for 30 days starting on April 15, 2022, to May 15, 2022.
