Consolidated Plan & Program Year 2013 Action Plan Hearings
DND is holding a final hearing (details above) seeking citizen input to develop a new Consolidated Plan that outlines Boston's housing and community development needs and priorities for the 5-year period of 7/1/13 to 6/30/18. The Consolidated Plan will be submitted to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and is a requirement to apply for HUD funds.
HUD also requires that Boston submit an annual Action Plan indicating how the City plans to use the federal funds that it will receive from HUD to address the priority needs identified in the Consolidated Plan. The Program Year 2013 Action Plan covers the period 7/1/13 to 6/30/14 for four grant programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA)
