2024-2025 Annual Action Plan Public Hearing

Authored on

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT the City of Santa Barbara will hold a needs assessment Public Hearing in preparation for development of its 2024-2025 Annual Action Plan. During the hearing the City will also review its performance of program year 2022-2023 as part of the development of the City’s Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER). The public and interested stakeholders are invited to attend.

In order for the City to receive annual Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), an Annual Action Plan (AAP) must be submitted. The AAP specifies the activities that will be undertaken to meet the City’s 5-year Consolidated Plan goals to address housing and community development needs using CDBG and HOME funds. The purpose of the hearing is to obtain public input on housing and community development needs.

The hearing will be held before the City’s Community Development and Human Services Committee (CDHSC) Tuesday, September 26, 2023 at 6 p.m. The City of Santa Barbara strongly encourages and welcomes public participation during this time. Please see the front page of the CDHSC meeting agenda packet for instructions on how to participate. Meeting agendas can be located on the City of Santa Barbara’s Boards and Commissions page at https://santabarbaraca.gov/government/boards-commissions, or through the City’s Human Services/CDBG program website at www.santabarbaraca.gov/humanservices.

The draft AAP will be prepared in early 2024, will be available for public review and comment, and submitted to HUD, which administers the CDBG and HOME programs, by no later than May 15, 2024, unless HUD issues an extension to submission requirements.
