The Five-Year Consolidated Plan is part of the City’s grant application to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The plan establishes a framework of housing and community development priorities for Riverside, aides in identifying and sets the foundation for projects and programs to help local low- and moderate-income communities solve their problems, meet their needs, and achieve their goals over the next five years.
The HUD Annual Action Plan then allocates funding to specific programs and projects for a given year. The action plan will appropriate Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) funding to specific programs and projects for the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
The City anticipates receiving approximately $35 million in federal housing and community development funds over the next 5 years. The Citizen Participation Plan is a document that details the City’s policy on public review and participation in the decision-making process regarding the Consolidated Planning Process in accordance with the Consolidated Plan implementing regulation 24 CFR 91.105. The Analysis of Impediments is a study conducted every five (5) years that identifies impediments that deter residents from having fair housing choices within the City. The Analysis of Impediments states how the City will act on its responsibility to address any impediments that are identified and take appropriate action(s) to overcome the effects of any impediments and to maintain records reflecting the analysis and other actions in this regard.
