CDBG 2020 Annual Action Plan Draft

The Consolidated Plan is a five-year plan that provides a unified vision for developing actions designed to address housing and community development needs. Development of the Plan is a collaborative process that creates the opportunity for citizen participation in setting long-term strategies and short-term actions to meet priority needs. An Action Plan: One Year Use of Funds is required by regulation under the CDBG Program. The City expects to receive an estimated $400,000 in CDBG funds for grant year 2020-2021 (April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021). The 2020 Annual Action Plan is available as part of the 2020 – 2024 Five-Year Consolidated Plan.
