A public hearing on the Hagerstown Community Development Block Grant programs for next fiscal year is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall.
The hearing is the first step in developing the list of activities that will be funded through the CDBG program in the next fiscal year, which begins July 1, City Community Development Department Manager George Andreve said.
"The hearing is an opportunity for anybody to come in and say what the community needs," Andreve said.
Andreve said people can come in requesting money for specific programs or projects, or to point out a community need.
While not everything will be able to be funded through the Community Development Department, city officials want to know all the concerns of residents, Andreve said.
A proposed list of projects to be funded will be announced around the end of April as part of the City Administrator's proposed budget, Andreve said.
