SUBJECT:
Amendment to the 2015-2019 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Consolidated Plan and proposed 2017 Annual Action Plan
RECOMMENDATION:
No action is needed at this time.
DISCUSSION:
The first 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan (5-Yr. ConPlan) of the City's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Entitlement Program was approved by the Mayor and City Council on May 2015. The 5-Yr. ConPlan was subsequently approved by the Office of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Since the beginning of the City's entitlement status in July 1, 2015 until early 2017, the CDBG Program implemented three (3) strategic goals from the 5-Yr. ConPlan as follows:
  1. Public infrastructure improvements
  2. Affordable housing
  3. Planning and administration 
At the beginning of the second year of the CDBG program, Staff initiated efforts to put the mechanisms in place that would allow CDBG funds to be available for public services and other activities other than affordable housing and public infrastructure. As part of that effort the 5-year ConPlan needed to be revised to expand the scope of activities that could potentially be funded. Beginning in the third program year (July 1, 2017) of the Entitlement Program, three additional  goals are proposed to be added to the 5-Yr. ConPlan.  Below are the proposed goals in the Strategic Plan of the 5-Yr. ConPlan with the new goals identified with an asterisk (*):

- Homeless Prevention *
- Community Development
- Public Services *
- Affordable Housing
- Economic Development*
- Program Administration and Planning

The whole process of having a 5-Yr. ConPlan with a Strategic Plan and an Annual Action Plan is not only to meet the requirements of HUD but also to serve as a guide in implementing the CDBG Program.  The ConPlan has identified community needs, and the expected resources available to meet those needs.  The Strategic Plan, which is part of the ConPlan, sets forth the strategic goals that have been developed to address these needs as well as the timeline involved in delivering the results.  The Annual Action Plan is the implementation document for each program year.  It has the actual proposed projects or activities that the grantee (City) and sub-grantees are proposing to meet the needs, as well as identifying the parties that are responsible for implementing the program and projects identified during the public participation processes.

As part of the public participation process, the amended document will be available to the public for a 30-day review.  Any comments received from the public will be included in the public hearing on June 19, 2017.
