St. Charles County qualifies to be an “urban county” and receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The county prepared a Consolidated Plan as required and part of that process is to prepare and allow for comment on the Citizen Participation Plan.
The Citizen Participation Plan provides a guide for public input and participation in the Consolidated Plan process and is intended to encourage citizen participation in the definition of housing, community development and public services needs. This plan incorporates the HUD required provisions. A 15‐day comment period was provided, which ended on August 27, 2010.
