About the Consolidated Plan
The Consolidated Plan is a three to five-year strategic implementation plan that identifies the priority community development and housing needs of the City of Inglewood and allocates resources to address the needs of very low - to moderate income-residents. The plan outlines an implementation strategy to meet those needs using Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Act (HOME), and Homeless Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds.
Consolidated Plan approval by the Mayor and Council-members is based on addressing the following community development and housing needs.
- Adequate Infrastructure
- Affordable Housing
- Comprehensive Assistance to the Homeless
- Economic and Human Development
- Enhancement of Civic Design
- Fair Housing
- Protection of the Environment
Consolidated Plan Components
The Consolidated Plan process encompasses the following components.
U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations require that the City implement and approve a formal citizen participation plan in order to receive funding. The City's Citizen Participation Plan provides for and encourages public involvement in identifying community needs and uses of funds in low-income areas. Public hearing, community meetings, workshops, and a community survey have been useful tools in the past in obtaining public opinion on how funds should be used. The Citizen Participation Plan is on file in the Office of the City Clerk and the CDBG Division.
Annual Action Plan
The Annual Action Plan is a one-year implementation strategy for each year of the Consolidated Plan, which identifies how the City will meet community development and housing needs. The Action Plan is due to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development 45 days prior to the start of the City's fiscal year which begins on October 1. The plan is on file in the Office of the City Clerk and the CDBG Division.
Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER)
The Annual Performance Report is due to the Department of Housing and Urban Development within 90 days of the end of the City's fiscal year. The report gives a detailed description of the sources of funding, the amount of funding, and the allocation of funding for projects and activities to meet the needs of low-income individuals. The CAPER is on file in the Office of the City Clerk and in the CDBG Division.
