Public Notice

The City of Cumberland is notifying the public regarding proposals to reprogram funds from activities affecting the 2015 and 2018 Annual Action Plans.  Reprogramming funds in a timely manner enables the City to comply with HUD “Timeliness” standards and allows the funds to be used on “shovel ready” activities.

$63,051.43 remains unspent of the 2018 Administration project (QQ18016) which was originally funded at $152,710.79.  The funds were allocated for general program administration, indirect cost and fair housing efforts for the CDBG program.  Due to the implementation of cost saving measures, the 2018 Administration project will be completed with $89,659.36 having been expended.  All $63,051.43 remaining will be re-allocated to the existing 2015 ADA Sidewalk Improvements Downtown-Cumberland Street (NN15007) project which came in over budget.

As a result of the aforementioned proposed Amendments to the 2015 and 2018 Annual Action Plans, the 2015 ADA Sidewalk Improvements Downtown-Cumberland Street project (NN15007) will be increased by a total of $63,051.43. Including the original $91,882.46, the total available for Cumberland Street sidewalks to $154,933.89. This activity requires additional funding in order to remove accessibility barriers, repair sidewalk and retaining walls at the intersection of Cumberland and Johnson Streets, Cumberland, Maryland.

Written comments concerning this change may be provided effective Sunday, October 20, 2019 through 4 PM Tuesday, November 19, 2019.  Provide written comments to the City of Cumberland, Department of Community Development by mail to 57 N. Liberty Street, Cumberland, Maryland or email at  This Amendment to the Community Development Block Grant Annual Plans will be considered by Mayor and City Council at the regular meeting on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 in Council Chambers at City Hall at 6:15 PM.
