Each year, ECD invites  feedback to develop an annual action plan that supports the five-year strategic plan for implementation of federal programs for housing, community and economic development.

More than $1.5 million is available for affordable housing development through new construction or rehabilitation of affordable housing. Also, the HOME – Affordable Housing Development plan includes $3 million for development through new construction or rehabilitation of affordable housing.

CDBG funds are administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to support residents with low to moderate incomes.

The 2024 Annual Action Plan describes how the city intends to use the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership, and Housing for People with Aids (HOPWA) funds for the 2024 program year.
