Type of Action Requested: Resolution, Public Hearing

SUBJECT:
2017 Annual Action Plan - Community Development Block Grant Entitlement (CDBG) Program
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends approval of the proposed 2017 Annual Action Plan.
DISCUSSION:
There are eight (8) proposed projects in the 2017 Annual Action Plan (Annual Plan) of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Entitlement Program.  The actual $348,181 CDBG allocation was announced by the Office of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on June 15th.  Due to a much delayed release of the 2017 budget at the Federal level, HUD issued a waiver reducing the public comment period from the required 30 days to 14 days for the annual plan which started in June 28th.  Staff complied with all public participation requirements in the formulation of the action plan.
 
Upon approval of the annual plan by HUD and issuance of the 2017 contract to release the allocation, the City will execute an interagency agreement with Subrecipients to ensure compliance of the Federal, State and Local regulations. 
 
The eight projects recommended for funding are the following:
  
Funding       Percentage   Submitted Projects for Program Year 2017                                
 $15,000      4%                Casa Grande Homeless Services                             
 $11,495      3%                Senior Connections Program                        
 $5,000        1%                Westside Crime Prevention and Awareness Program                                      
 $15,293      4%                Advocacy Services for Victims of Abuse and Homeless Women and Children                          
 $50,000      14%              New Playground Equipment at Carr McNatt Park            
 $63,500      18%              Owner-Occupied Housing Rehabilitation                         
 $118,257    34%              Sidewalk Improvement Project           
 $69,636      20%              Planning and Administration (20% of the total allocation)                    
 $348,181    100% 2017 Total Funding Allocation by Projects       
  
A summary of the applications are included in this RCA along with the draft Annual Plan.
FISCAL IMPACT:
There is no fiscal impact to the City's general fund. All projects proposed under this program are funding through thel CDBG Entitlement allocation and other funding sources such as the State of Arizona Department of Housing, Revolving Loan Funds for housing, and Tribal grants.
ALTERNATIVES:
Approval of the request will authorize staff to forward the 2017 Annual Action Plan to the Office of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for HUD review and approval which will be followed by the execution of 2017 HUD contract and release of funding.

No action or disapproval of this request will prevent the release of the 2017 CDBG Entitlement allocation from HUD and all proposed projects will not be funded.
