Six proposed activities located at West 7th Street, Sioux Falls, under the Neighborhood Revitalization program will be canceled. Six lots were purchased with $79,678.62 of CDBG funds to build six owner-occupied townhomes for six eligible households with incomes at or below 80 percent of area median income. At this time, the City has not identified a new use of the property that qualifies as meeting one of the national objectives in 24 CFR § 570.208. If the City cannot identify a new use of the property that fits these requirements through this public comment period, the City will need to repay the funds to HUD as required under 24 CFR § 570.505(b) to be used for future CDBG eligible activities as stated above in this paragraph. As allowed under 24 CFR § 570.505(b), the City is opting to retain the property for future use.
Persons wishing additional information on the above projects or activities may contact the Housing Division office by calling 367-8180 or TTY at 367-7039 for communication assistance.
