Salem’s Draft FY25 Action Plan Available for Review

Public Hearing Scheduled for April 18, 2024

Salem Mayor Dominick Pangallo today announced the availability of the City of Salem’s Draft Action Plan for Fiscal Year 2025 (July 1, 2024 to June 30, 2025), which outlines priority activities for anticipated Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funding.  The Draft Plan is available for a public comment period, which ends on May 6, 2024 and may be viewed at

CDBG and HOME funding, provided through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), assists income-eligible households and low- to moderate-income neighborhoods through a variety of programs, services and improvements.  The draft FY25 Action Plan translates into action the goals and strategies established in the 5-Year Consolidated Plan, which was completed following an extensive public participation process in 2020. 

“CDBG and HOME provide critical funding for community, housing, and economic development initiatives here in Salem,” said Mayor Pangallo, “I strongly encourage community members to become engaged in the development of our Draft Action Plan for FY25 for these important programs.”

During the public comment period, a public hearing will be held on Thursday, April 18, 2024 at the City Hall Annex at 6:00 p.m.  The purpose of the hearing is to provide an opportunity for Salem community members to comment on the draft plan.  Interested parties may also provide written comment addressed to the City of Salem Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD) by May 6, 2024.  Copies of the Draft Plan are available for review at the Salem Public Library, Salem Housing Authority and at the DPCD.
