Kenneth C. Gillie, Jr.
Business Meeting: 06/15/2021
The City of Danville is a participating jurisdiction under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Under this designation, the City receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investments Partnership Program (HOME) funds annually. A prerequisite for the City to receive CDBG and HOME funds, is the development of a One Year Annual Action Plan. Basic goals of the Plan are: 1) decent housing, 2) suitable living environment, and 3) expanded economic opportunities. All funded activities must address one or more national objectives: benefit low- to moderate-income persons, aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight, or meet an urgent community need for which no other funds are available.
A large majority of the CDBG funds have historically been used for neighborhood revitalization efforts, and it is proposed to continue focusing on this effort in the 2021-22 Plan. In addition, there is a public service category which can be funded up to 15% of the annual allocation that provides funding to assist non-profit organizations carry out programs that benefit low- to moderate-income individuals and/or households. In the past, many of the same outside agencies have been funded under this category, however, this year the agencies were selected through a request for proposal process in accordance with HUD's guidelines. The City anticipates a total budget of $1,245,901 for Fiscal Year 2021-22, comprised of $907,295 CDBG funds, $273,606 HOME funds, and $65,000 estimated program income generated from loan repayments and the sale of houses currently under City's lease-to-purchase program. The proposed uses of funds for next fiscal year are described in the attachments, excluding those that will fall under the Public Services category. A Public Hearing on the Action Plan is advertised for City Council’s June 15, 2021 meeting. The public review period for the one year plan is 14-days, in accordance with HUD CPD Notice 16-18 and included review by the Housing & Development Advisory Committee. The comment period will be May 13, 2021 - June 16, 2021.
It is recommended that City Council adopt the attached Resolution approving the 2021-22 HUD one-year Action Plan.
