The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires state and local governments to develop a five-year Consolidated Plan (ConPlan) and an annual Action Plan to receive funds from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA), and Housing Trust Fund (HTF) Programs. The City continues to encourage public participation in the development of the ConPlan which identifies housing and community development needs and a long-range strategic plan to meet those needs, and the annual Action Plan which details the activities the City will undertake in the upcoming year to address those needs. The policies and procedures for such participation are set forth in the CPP.
The CPP is being updated to:
1) change Emergency “Shelter” Grants to Emergency “Solutions” Grants;
2) include the Housing Trust Fund (HTF) Program; and
3) make other non-substantive or housekeeping amendments.
