In the 2021 Action Plan, the City will continue its service delivery through Meals on Wheels, the Apex Community Hub (46 Sullivan Street) and Seeds of Hope, and focus the rest of its funding on the Owner Occupied 2-4 Unit Multi Family Housing Rehab Program. The program will be delivered through a simplified, direct approach using the Citizen Advisory Committee, the two hubs, Biddeford Ready, and a mixture of staff to deliver programs that target the needs of Biddeford's core area.
Update (5/18/2021): a Public Hearing is now scheduled for the Year 4 Action Plan. See details here.
