The Consolidated Plan is the City’s five year plan for federally funded programs. The City participates in two federal programs:

  1. The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program
  2. The HOME program

The next Consolidated Plan cycle is for years 2020-2025. The Plan is designed to help states and local jurisdictions to assess their affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions. Based on the analysis, the City can develop goals and prioritize the federal funding on those identified housing and community needs. Future spending allocations must be consistent with the priorities outlined in the Consolidate Plan.

The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans, which provide a concise summary of the actions, activities, and the specific federal and non-federal resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified by the Consolidated Plan. Grantees report on accomplishments and progress toward Consolidated Plan goals in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER).

Federal Funding

Annually, the City receives approximately $500,000 from the CDBG program and approximately $200,000 from the HOME program. Funding has been slightly higher in the past few years.

Use of Funds

The CDBG funds can be used for a number of activities ranging from public services to capital (brick and mortar) projects. The activities must primarily benefit low income households. HOME funds are primarily for the development of affordable housing. Funding for public services is not an eligible activity under the HOME program.
