The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires the City to submit a Consolidated Plan every five years plus an Annual Action Plan each year that describes community needs, resources, priorities, and proposed activities to be undertaken under CDBG. The City will receive $439,129 in CDBG funds for Program Year 2019 (April 1, 2019 – March 31, 2020).
