Public Notice of Intent to Reprogram Community Development Block Grant Funds

Amendment #36102019

City of Cumberland                   

The City of Cumberland is notifying the public regarding proposals to reprogram funds from activities affecting the 2018 Annual Action Plan.  Reprogramming funds in a timely manner enables the City to comply with HUD “Timeliness” standards and allows the funds to be used on “shovel ready” activities.

$63,403 remains unspent of the 2018 Salvation Army Facility Rehab: HVAC (QQ18050) which was originally funded at $63,403.  The funds were awarded for the installation of an HVAC system in the gymnasium of the community center located on701 E. First Street, Cumberland.  At the request of the Salvation Army of Cumberland, the project was canceled on May 14, 2019. Funds will be re-programmed to continue the Jane Frazier Village sidewalk improvements activity which is currently in it’s third year phase of funding.

As a result of the aforementioned proposed Amendment to the 2018 Annual Action Plan, the 2018 Jane Frazier Village Sidewalk Improvements Ph 3 (QQ18048) project will be increased by a total of $63,403.  The total funds available for this activity, which will remove barriers to accessibility and complete sidewalk replacement around and within the public housing project, is $187,143 when added to $123,740, the original grant and funds added by Amendment  in March of 2019.  This activity requires additional funding in order to complete more of the total footage of sidewalks, curbs and associated support walls within and surrounding the 125 public housing units at Jane Frazier Village in South Cumberland. 

Written comments concerning this change may be provided effective Friday, June 14, 2019 through 4 PM Monday, July 13, 2019.  Provide written comments to the City of Cumberland, Department of Community Development by mail to 57 N. Liberty Street, Cumberland, Maryland or email at  This Amendment to the Community Development Block Grant Annual Plans will be considered by Mayor and City Council at the regular meeting on Tuesday, July 16, 2019 in Council Chambers at City Hall at 6:15 PM.
