Explanation
BACKGROUND: The Consolidated Plan and the related Action Plan combine into a single submission the planning and application aspects of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) programs. This plan represents a continuing commitment to provide decent housing, suitable living environments and expanded economic opportunities.
Because HUD has not announced the 2019 grant allocations, this legislation contains a proposed budget with estimated funding amounts, and the application contains a contingency provision describing how the final plan will be adjusted to match the actual allocations. The 2019 Grant allocations are expected to be announced in spring 2019. The city is required to complete the citizen participation plan based on estimated dollar amounts in order to begin incurring those costs necessary for efficient and timely performance during the 2019 Fiscal year. This process is in accordance with HUD CPD Notice 18-01.
EMERGENCY LEGISLATION: This ordinance is submitted as an emergency to ensure the timely preparation of the application and compliance with the Citizen Participation Plan by November 15, 2018, thus allowing the city to incur pre-award costs.
FISCAL IMPACT: The FY2019 Action Plan Budget utilizes carryover from previous years and assumes 2019 allocations of roughly $6.5 Million for CDBG, $4.1 Million for HOME Investment Partnerships, $1.1 Million for Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) and $580,000 for Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), details housing and community development needs and priorities as well as identifies how availible funding will be used to address those needs.
