Agenda Item #8
#8 Neighborhood and Community Services Division staff will be present to request Council approval to secure a consultant through a competitive Request For Proposals process for completion of a five-year Consolidated Plan. Because the Consolidated Plan planning process requires in-depth research, data analysis, community and public outreach and proper reporting into the HUD system, services of a consultant are necessary. Due to limited CDBG allocation and the HUD-mandated cap on those funds, staff is requesting a General Fund transfer in the amount of $50,000.00 to fund the project.

Per Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requirements, CDBG entitlement communities are required to have a five-year Consolidated Plan in place to guide CDBG program activities. The City’s current Consolidated Plan covers program years 2017-2021, with the fifth and final year of the current Consolidated Plan ending March 31, 2022. A new five-year Consolidated Plan must be submitted to HUD by February 15, 2022 for approval. (ACTION ITEM)
