Public Hearings & Commissioners Meeting
Monday, February 6, 2023
The Sullivan County Commissioners will hold 3 public hearings on February 6, 2023 at 3:00 p.m. at 14 Main Street Newport, NH 03773 in the first-floor conference room.
The purpose of the first Public Hearing is to discuss and receive public comment on several microenterprise technical assistance projects currently underway. These projects are funded through a federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) awarded to the County of Sullivan.
The second Public Hearing will discuss applications to the NH Community Development Finance Authority under the CDBG program. CDBG funds are awarded on a competitive basis in New Hampshire and may be used for projects which have primary benefit to low-and moderate-income people. A municipality can apply for up to $500,000 in CDBG funds per year in each of the following categories: housing, public facilities, economic development, microenterprise technical assistance, and emergency funds. Muncipalities can also applyl for up to $25,000 annually for feasibility studies. The proposal(s) to be considered by the Commissioners is a grant designed to support small businesses to be submitted by Sullivan County for up to $500,000. The funds, less administrative costs, will be sub-granted to one or more agencies to provide resources such as technical assistance, direct grants and loans to entrepreneurs and small businesses with five or fewer employees in New Hampshire. This public hearing has been scheduled to provide residents with specific information regarding the grant requirements.
A third Public Hearing will be held to adopt the Relocation and Anti-Displacement Plan specific to these projects.
