 Second Public Hearing Notice

St. Lucie County plans to apply to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) for a FFY 2016 Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) of $750,000 in the Housing Rehabilitation category. The activities, dollar amounts and estimated percentage of benefit to low- and moderate-income persons are as follows:

Activity Name                                   CDBG Funding                            LMI Benefit Administration      

Administration                                  $ 112,500                                     NA

Housing Rehabilitation                     $ 626,500                                    100%

Temporary Relocation                      $ 11,000                                       100%

The County plans to rehabilitate or demolish and replace at least eleven very low-, low- and moderate-income homes within the unincorporated area of St. Lucie County that do not meet current building code standards. The County will accept applications for rehabilitation assistance from qualified homeowners if grant funding is received.

The County does not expect that anyone will be permanently displaced as a result of CDBG-funded activities. If any persons are displaced as a result of the planned activities, St. Lucie County will assist them as described in its anti-displacement and relocation policy, which is available for review at www.slchousing.org.

The public hearing to provide citizens an opportunity to comment on the application will be held on January 24, 2017 at 9:00 a.m., or as soon as possible thereafter, during the St. Lucie County Board of County Commission meeting held in the Commissions Chambers of the Rodger Poitras Administration Building, 2300 Virginia Avenue, Fort Pierce, FL 34982. Written comments received in advance of the public hearing will also be considered and may be submitted to comm_info@stlucieco.org  or to St. Lucie County Community Services, Attention: Housing Division, 437 N. 7th Street, Fort Pierce, FL 34950. A draft copy of the application will be available for review at the St. Lucie County Community Services office during normal business hours or online at www.slchousing.org.

A copy of the final application will be available for review at the St. Lucie County Community Services Office and online at www.slchousing.org no later than February 3, 2017. The application will be submitted to DEO on or before February 15, 2017.
