PUBLIC NOTICE AND NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT BUSINESS LOAN FUNDS

Eagle County plans to submit a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) application to the State of Colorado, Department of Local Affairs, c/o the Office of Economic Development and International Trade. CDBG funds are intended to provide decent housing, suitable living environments and economic opportunities, principally for low and moderate income persons through rehabilitation and preservation, economic development (generally job creation/retention) and public facilities improvements. In regards to all FY 2020 CDBG programs, it is estimated that $10,055,294 will be available statewide for distribution to units of general local government in the state’s nonentitlement areas. For economic development projects, it is estimated that $ 3,217,878 will be available statewide for distribution for economic development to units of general local government in the state’s nonentitlement areas.

The application being considered would be a request for the Northwest Business Loan Fund for $500,000.00 for small business loan funding. It is estimated that approximately 51% of the funds would benefit low and moderate income persons. Permanent involuntary displacement of neighborhood persons or businesses is not anticipated. Should it later become necessary to consider such displacement, alternatives will be examined to minimize the displacement. If no feasible alternatives exist, required/reasonable benefits will be provided to those displaced to mitigate adverse effects and hardships. Any low and moderate income housing which is demolished or converted will be replaced.

A public hearing will be held at 10:00 AM on Tuesday February 4, 2020  at the Commissioners Meeting Room 500 Broadway, Eagle, Co. to obtain citizen views and to respond to proposals and questions related to:

1. The proposed CDBG application for the above-referenced economic development activities; specifically for a new CDBG contract in the amount of $580,000.00 with $500,000.00 allocated for direct business assistance and $80,000.00 for administration. The application is proposed for Eagle County to act as the lead county for the Nine (9) counties of the Region 11 & 12 Business Loan Fund acting through a Memorandum of Agreement with Eagle County in providing business assistance to applicants in all of the Nine (9) participating counties     

2. The purpose of the hearing is also to allow citizens to review and comment on the performance of Northwest Loan Fund or Eagle County–Grantee with the Northwest Loan Fund_ Region 11 & 12 business loan program in carrying out their small business loan fund program, which was financed with federal Community Development Block Grant (#F16CDB16602) funds provided by the State of Colorado. Comments regarding the close out of this 2016 CDBG grant for the Region 11 & 12 Northwest Business Loan Fund of Silverthorne, Colorado, will also be heard. This grant was sponsored by Eagle County acting as the Lead County for the Nine (9) counties of Region 11 & 12, administered by the Northwest Loan Fund

3. The performance of Eagle County in carrying out its community development responsibilities.

Written or emailed comments are also welcome and must be received by January 31 2020 at        Northwest Loan Fund, P O Box 2308, Silverthorne, CO 80498 or Anita@NorthwestLoanFund.org. Oral, written or email comments will be considered in deciding whether to submit an application for the proposed project. Written summary information will be available at   Northwest Loan Fund, 249 Warren Avenue, Silverthorne, CO 80498 on January 15, 2020 until February 3, 2020 on any CDBG application(s) Eagle County intends to submit to the state. A copy of the application(s) as submitted to the state will be available for public review at Northwest Loan Fund, 249 Warren Avenue, Silverthorne, CO 80498 after January 15 2020.

Information and records regarding Eagle County’s proposed and past use of CDBG funds are available at Northwest Loan Fund, 249 Warren Avenue, Silverthorne, CO 80498 during regular office hours. Advance notice is requested. If special accommodations are needed, please notify the Office Manager (Office@NWCCOG.org) so that the appropriate aids can be made available.
