Update on Consolidated Funding Application Process
During his remarks, Commissioner Towns provided an update on HCR’s next funding round and announced that tax credit and affordable and supportive housing programs would no longer be a part of the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA). Applications will be scored by HCR staff who will use existing regional plans to assure selected projects help advance those goals and strategies.
“We’ve been listening to your feedback and conducting our own analysis, and the decision has been made to focus on more traditional economic development programs in the CFA,” said Commissioner Towns. The Commissioner added that Community Development Block Grant program and Main Street program community development resources would remain in the CFA process, as these have direct economic impact.
