The Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development annually allocates a series of grants to local jurisdictions for community development activities. As a requirement to receive these entitlement grants, Title I of the National Affordable Housing Act mandates that jurisdictions prepare a 5-year Consolidated Plan (PDF) that identifies local community development needs and sets forth a strategy to address these needs. The Consolidated Plan must address both affordable housing and non-housing related community development needs. The needs are targeted to low-income persons or low-income areas.
Community Input Needed for Gilroy's

All Gilroy community members are encouraged to participate by attending a meeting and completing a community needs survey, to identify Gilroy's needs. Concurrently, the City will also be seeking input for its 2020-2025 Assessment of Fair Housing and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Consolidated Plan. These plans, to be adopted by the City Council next Spring, will guide the allocation of CDBG and other federal funds in Gilroy for our residents with the greatest needs.
