Consolidated Plan


The plan covers a five year period and describes community needs, resources, priorities, and proposed activities to be undertaken each program year via an annual action plan. 

Annual Action Plan


The annual action plan describes the funding levels and activities to be undertaken during individual upcoming program year for the CDBG program to address the priority needs and objectives as outlined in the consolidated plan.


Environmental Review Record (ERR)


The Housing and Urban Development Act of 1974, as amended, requires that applicants for funds under the CDBG program undertake an environmental assessment for activities.

The environmental review records follows the format established by the HUD publication, "Environmental Review Guide for Community Development Block Grant Programs" and other applicable HUD guidance documents. The goal of this particular assessment is to provide the basis for a "finding" as to whether the request for funds for the activities: is not an action which may significantly affect the quality of the human environment or is an action which may significantly affect and therefore, will require an Environmental Impact Statement. Due to the file size, the supporting documentation related to the ERR is not able to be posted to the city's website. Interested parties may contact the planning division to obtain a digital copy if interested.

CAPER describes annual action plan activities that occurred between July 1st and June 30th of each program year / fiscal year for the CDBG program. The CAPER includes the status of the city's efforts toward implementing HUD's performance measurement system requirements and is considered a year end summary of the prior program year.

Citizen Participation Plan
