HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CONSOLIDATED PLAN BUDGET DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

The Consolidated Plan identifies the needs, priorities, and details on how the community needs will be addressed through a comprehensive analysis and strategic plan. Resident input is also an important part of the budget development process to help the City determines activities that will best serve the needs of the community based upon HUD eligible activities. The FY 2021-22 HUD Consolidated Plan Budget was approved by Res. #21-0974.

In January of 2022, Budget & Management Services and the Community Development Commission hosted six (6) virtual public meetings to encourage residents an non profit organizations to provide their input on community needs and the use of federal funds for the next fiscal year (which begins October 1). Residents participated in these meetings virtually, by landline, mobile phone or web simulcast. 


Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES ACT)

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) provides billions of dollars in federal grant funding to state, local, tribal and territorial governments, hospitals, and other organizations in response to the coronavirus pandemic.  

The CARES Act includes additional HUD funds to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to facilitate immediate assistance to eligible communities and households economically impacted by COVID-19.  The CARES Act also included a waiver to allow a public review and comment period to be no less than 5 days.   Due to reduced and suspended services in the current year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, available unspent HUD have been identified to reallocate to further support the City's COVID-19 relief efforts.
