PUBLIC REVIEW PERIOD: A 30-day public review period will begin on April 6, 2018 and end on May 5, 2018 for the Draft Fiscal Year 2018-2019 Annual Action Plan of the adopted Consolidated Plan for 2015 - 2020. Comments received during the review period and at the public hearings will be addressed in the final Annual Action Plan which will be submitted for approval to US Department of Housing and Urban Development on May 11, 2018.
The Draft Annual Action Plan describes the CDBG and HTF activities and City estimated funding plans for the period of July 1, 2018-June 30, 2019, pending the federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) approved CDBG funding for FY18-19. During Fiscal Year 2018-2019 the City is estimated to receive $460,364 in CDBG funds plus an estimated $50,000 in program income from various sources such as loan repayments. The City expects to allocate approximately $76,555 for public services, $102,072 for program administration, $13,500 for code enforcement, $120,000 for the Rebuilding Home Repair, Rehabilitation & Accessibility Modification Program and approximately $198,128 for capital projects and/or a rehabilitation program in the Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA.) Approximately $162,000 is expected to be available from the Housing Trust Fund for housing activities and related housing public services. The CDBG and HTF programs are currently directed toward promoting housing opportunities and choices, improving community facilities, and providing supportive services for targeted groups, including the homeless, seniors, youth, persons with disabilities, and activities in the Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area.
