City seeking input on CDBG/HOME ‘Annual Action Plan’
COVINGTON, Ky. – The virtual hearing scheduled for this afternoon to get feedback on the City’s proposed spending of annual federal grant money has been delayed until next Monday, April 26.

The draft proposal – called the Annual Action Plan -- outlines how the City proposes investing almost $1.5 million in its neighborhoods, plus almost $600,000 on affordable housing in Covington and four surrounding cities. The money represents the expected annual allocation from the CDBG and HOME federal grant programs. It’s unrelated to COVID-19 recovery funds.
