The purpose of this hearing is to discuss the reprogramming of FY18 and FY19 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to create a small business (forgivable) loan program during the COVID-19 pandemic. The City is requesting to use some funding (approximately $100,000) of Commercial Improvement Program for sign/façade rehabilitation to fund Commercial Improvements Assistance to For-Profit Businesses to support the small business loan program. Funds will first be targeted to micro-enterprises (less than 5 FTEs) with a second phase serving small businesses with less than 10 employees. See CEDD city website page https://greenfield-ma.gov/cedd for additional information.

Any person or organization present will be given the opportunity to comment at the hearing. The City will make every attempt to provide interpretive and translation services, if necessary, with advance request. Comments may be submitted in writing or by e-mail to Lindsay Rowe at lindsay.rowe@greenfield-ma.gov and be received by 5:00 p.m. April 27, 2020.
