CARES ACT SUBSTANTIAL AMENDMENT TO THE 2019 ANNUAL ACTION PLAN

This qualifies as a substantial amendment in accordance with the Township of Cherry Hill’s Citizen Participation Plan. This document will be available to the public for review and comment until December 12, 2020

On December 10, 2020 at 2pm, the Township of Cherry Hill will hold a Virtual Public Hearing via the Zoom platform to consider the proposed substantial changes to the FY 2019 CDBG Annual Action Plan.  Members of the public will be given the opportunity to speak during this hearing to verbally submit their public comment.  All interested persons, groups, and organizations are encouraged to attend, review the Substantial Amendment on public review and provide public comment.
