As part of this planning process, the County will conduct three Public Hearings to provide County residents with information on the application process for the FY 2019 Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG), the Emergency Solutions Grant Program (ESG), the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program, the Emergency Food and Shelter Grant Program (EFSP) and the Homeless Assistance Program (HAP).
