CDBG Program Overview

As a direct recipient of Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) funds from
the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the City is required to make strategic choices about how they administer and fund their local programs. The City’s planning, implementation, and evaluation of its use of CDBG funds are guided by the framework established by HUD’s CDBG regulations and are integrated into several plans.

Consolidate Plan (Con Plan)


The Con Plan is a 5-year plan (PDF) (July 1, 2012 - June 30, 2017) that consists of various components that assess the City’s current housing market, analyze demographic, ethnic, and socio-economic conditions, and identify populations within the City who have the greatest community and housing needs, including:
  • Families
  • Persons who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness
  • Persons with disabilities
  • Seniors
It also defines the City’s priority needs, strategies, and objectives for reducing the most prevalent barriers to housing and services in our community.

Annual Action Plan


The Annual Action Plan is a yearly plan that identifies the specific activities and projects to be undertaken with CDBG Program funds during that program year. The Action Plan contains a complete list of service providers and capital improvement projects that are being funded and an outline of the process used to develop the annual funding recommendations.

Consolidated Annual Performance & Evaluation Report (CAPER)


The CAPER reports the City’s completion of projects and activities as outlined within the Consolidated and Action Plans and the expenditure of CDBG at the end of each program year.
