Community Development Block Grant
2019 CDBG Funds Availability
The City of West Sacramento Economic Development and Housing Commission will conduct a public hearing on January 23, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. to announce the availability of federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for program year 2019 and to receive public comment regarding programs and projects that may be considered for funding.
Interested persons are invited to attend. The hearing will be held at the City of West Sacramento Civic Center, second floor, 1110 West Capitol Ave., West Sacramento, California 95691. In compliance with the ADA, if you need assistance to participate in this meeting, you should contact the City Clerk at (916) 617-4500. Notification 72 hours prior to the meeting will enable the City to make reasonable accommodations or to make interpreter services available to assure accessibility at the meeting. The Civic Center is handicapped accessible.
The City of West Sacramento receives an annual allocation of CDBG funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As a condition of the grant, the City is required to develop an Annual Action Plan outlining how funds will be used to meet goals set in a HUD-approved five-year Consolidated Plan. The 2019 Annual Action Plan will cover the fourth year of the City’s 2016-2020 Consolidated Plan. The 2016-2020 Consolidated Plan goals are: 1) reduce the incidence and impact of homelessness; 2) achieve goals in the Washington Sustainable Community Strategy; 3) strengthen economic opportunities for lower-income households; and 4) affirmatively further fair housing compliance.
CDBG funds must be used for projects that meet at least one of the three HUD national objectives: 1) benefitting low and moderate-income households; 2) addressing slums or blight conditions; or 3) addressing an urgent need such as flood or earthquake damage. Eligible projects include, but are not limited to: public infrastructure, parks, affordable housing and job creation; in addition to public services such as programs serving the homeless, disabled, elderly or low-income persons. Public facility development may be eligible for projects such as acquisition or rehabilitation of shelters, health clinics, or youth centers benefitting low- and moderate-income families. The City estimates an allocation of funds close to the prior year’s CDBG allocation of $446,498 and an estimated $130,000 in program income to be available during program year 2019. Assistance is available to groups representing low-income residents that are interested in learning about CDBG funding for programs or projects. Questions or comments may be directed to Amber Whitaker, Community Investment Specialist, at (916) 617-4555 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City of West Sacramento promotes fair housing and makes all programs available to low- and moderate-income households regardless of age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual preference, marital status or disability.
