Proposed State of Alabama CDBG-CV Program FY2020 Application Public Hearing and Public Comment Perio

CDBG Covid Funds Public Meeting 3-8-21

The CARES Act was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Trump on March 27, 2020, to protect the American people from the public health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. HUD allocated funds to the State of Alabama to expend additional federal grant dollars on area health, educational and economic distress needs. Activities using these funds must meet one of the National Objectives as required by HUD.

The State of Alabama allocated the City of Opelika, a qualifying entitlement community, $500,000 in State CDBG-CV Program funds. The City is requesting to allocate these funds as follows:

Southside Senior Center       $400,000.00
Opelika Main Street
               $54,000.00
Public Facilities  
                   $46,000.00
TOTAL                                     $500,000.00


A public hearing will be held on Monday, March 8, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. at the Municipal Meeting Room, 300 Martin Luther King Blvd. Due to the urgency of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CARES Act authorized HUD to grant waivers to the public notice, public comments, and citizen participation plan requirements allowing for an expedited comment period of not less than five (5) days. The city recognizes the importance of citizen input and comments and encourages participation. The city is accepting written comments beginning Monday, March 8, 2021, and ending at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 12, 2021. The public may submit their written comments to:

Lisa Thrift
Community Development Administrator
Planning Department
City of Opelika Public Works
700 Fox Trail
Opelika, AL 36801

If special accommodations are needed to participate at the hearing by persons with disabilities please contact Kevin Rice, the City’s ADA Compliance Officer at 705-2083 at least forty-eight hours in advance.
