BACKGROUND
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) appropriates funding through its Community Development Program (CDP) to cities, counties, and states. The City of Santa Clara receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds and Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) funds from HUD to provide social programs, affordable housing and community development projects that benefit low-income persons and households. For fiscal year 2020-2021, the City also received one-time funding from the CARES Act to provide emergency programs to assist low-income households affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

HUD requires that recipients of its funding prepare a five-year strategic plan called a Consolidated Plan (ConPlan). The 2020-2025 ConPlan was approved by the City Council on May 12, 2020. The ConPlan identifies housing and community needs of low-income persons within the City and prioritizes resources to address those needs over a 5-year period. The objectives and goals of the ConPlan are accomplished through Annual Action Plans.

Annual Action Plans detail projects, activities and the specific federal and non-federal resources that the City will use each year to address its ConPlan needs and goals. The FY 21/22 Annual Action was approved by the City Council on May 4, 2021. During the Public Hearing, City Council directed staff to explore increasing the minimum Public Service Grants to help reduce city administrative costs.

At the end of each program year, the City prepares its Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) which details annual accomplishments and progress towards achieving the ConPlan goals.
