FY 2015 - 2019 Consolidated Plan and FY 2015 Action Plan Public Hearings for Regional Committees

The County of Bergen Community Development is in the process of developing its FY2015 - 2019 Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan for FY2015. The Consolidated Plan serves as the County’s application for federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the following programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG). As part of the plan, Bergen County Division of Community Development must identify the County’s housing, community and economic development needs. Then develop goals and objectives to address those needs.

Community Development is requesting your assistance to help identify the housing, community and economic development needs for Bergen County. Your responses will help us identify how the County’s funding will be prioritized over the next 5 years. In order to obtain your input, Community Development has scheduled regional public hearings to obtain public input on these needs throughout the County.

This forum will allow anyone desiring to make a comment or discuss policy to participate. A court stenographer will be present to take your comments/testimony which will become a part of the Bergen County’s 5 year Consolidated Plan. For those persons who are unable to attend the regional public hearings, written comments may be submitted to Angela Drakes at Community Development, One Bergen County Plaza - 4th floor, Hackensack, New Jersey 07601 or emailed to  You may also complete the survey posted below in both English and Spanish.
