COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT (CDBG) PROGRAM
PROPOSED BUDGETS
Residents of the Borough of Gettysburg are hereby notified that the Gettysburg Borough Council intends to
hold a public hearing at 6:30 PM on Monday, August 28th, 2023 to hear comments from the public on the
Borough’s fiscal year 2023 State Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. Borough Council
intends to consider the proposed FY2023 CDBG Entitlement budgets and application submissions for approval
at the Borough Council meeting immediately following this public hearing.
Gettysburg Borough has been notified by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic
Development that the Borough’s 2023 Entitlement Community Development Block Grant allocation is
$129,141. Gettysburg Borough’s CDBG funds may be used to:
(1) benefit low to moderate income (LMI) persons,
(2) remove slums or blight, or
(3) meet an urgent community need.
FY2023 Entitlement CDBG funds may be used for any eligible activity.
The Council proposes to use the Borough’s allocations for the following activities:
1. ADA curb cuts along various alleys throughout the Borough ‐ $129,141
Total: $129,141
In the event that the Department of Community and Economic Development does not approve a project, or if
requests are withdrawn, funds may be allocated to other eligible projects. The deadline for the County to
submit the FY2023 CDBG Entitlement application on behalf of the Borough to the Commonwealth is October
27, 2023.
It is anticipated that 70% of the approved grant funds will benefit low to moderate income persons. Further, it
is anticipated that none of the proposed activities will result in temporary or permanent displacement of any
households. However, in the event that displacement should occur, the Borough’s policy for minimizing such
displacement would be in effect. Gettysburg Borough is responsible for replacing all low and moderate income
housing units that may be demolished or converted as a result of the use of CDBG funds.
The Council will accept comment on the proposals prior to and at the public hearing. Documents pertaining to
the budgets and CDBG Program are available for inspection at the Gettysburg Borough Municipal Office
Building, 59 East High Street, Gettysburg, PA 17325 during normal business hours, and on the Gettysburg
Borough of Gettysburg
