Public Hearing Notice August 5th, 2015
Waccamaw HOME Consortium and the SC Department of Commerce are sponsoring a series of focus group meetings to discuss community and economic development needs and priorities throughout the region. This will help us as we develop the Community and Economic Development sections of the State’s Consolidated Plan for Housing and Community Development as well as the Waccamaw HOME Consortium Consolidated Plan. This plan also includes the needs of the Urban Entitlements of Horry County, the City of Myrtle Beach and the City of Conway.
The purpose of the public hearing is to receive input on how to spend the federal funds for activities addressing the following types of area needs. Proposed activities must primarily benefit persons with low and moderate-incomes.
- Affordable Housing
- Homeless Prevention
- People with Special Needs
- Neighborhood Revitalization
Because the Plan affects many people, communities and organizations across the State and region, we are seeking your help in identifying needs and opportunities, so that we may develop strategies and priorities for funding that best meet the needs of the local jurisdictions.
