The Northern Marianas Housing Corporation (NMHC) is committed to providing opportunities for its citizens to participate in an advisory role in the planning, implementation, and assessment of its Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program. NMHC recognizes that those persons or groups affected by, or involved with projects under this program can provide meaningful assistance to those responsible for program implementation. In order to encourage and support the participation of citizens, NMHC will provide adequate information and give citizens the opportunity to comment. The exchange of information among citizens, NMHC staff, and elected officials will allow for a stronger, more responsive housing and community development effort in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI). The Citizen Participation Plan outlined here is distinctly separate from Citizen Participation Plans used within NMHC for programs such as the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, HOME Partnerships (HOME) Program, and the Emergency Solutions Grant (HESG). The requirements of the CDBG-DR Program are further listed within the Federal Register.
