The amended 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan and amended 2019 Annual Action Plan is available for public comment Monday, May 11, 2020, through Tuesday, May 19, 2020.

Kentucky has amended the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan and 2019 Annual Action Plan and is receiving written comments to obtain public input. Written comments will be accepted, and where applicable, will be incorporated into the document.
