FAIRFIELD — The Town of Fairfield’s Community and Economic Development Department, in accordance with its Citizen Participation Plan, will hold a Public Hearing to solicit citizen input on prospective projects for funding under the Community Development Block Grant for Program Year 45.

The Public Hearing will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 5 p.m., in the 2nd Floor Conference Room in Old Town Hall, 611 Old Post Road, Fairfield. Program Year 45 begins Oct. 1, 2019 and ends Sept. 30, 2020.

The Town of Fairfield has not received notice to date of its CDBG allocation for the upcoming Program Year 45.
