Consolidated Plan

Program Year 2022 Annual Action Plan and HOME-ARP Allocation Plan

Each year, the city is required to prepare an Annual Action Plan in order to receive block grant funding from the US Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funding can be used to address a wide range of community development needs, such as community improvement projects and projects that focus on low-to-moderate income households. This year we will also be receiving additional funding through the HOME Investment Partnership American Rescue Plan Program (HOME-ARP) to help reduce homelessness and increase housing stability.

2022 Annual Action Plan and HOME-ARP Plan Engagement Opportunity

The City of Boise invites public comment on two plans: the draft 2022 Annual Action Plan and the 2nd amendment to the 2021 Annual Action Plan.

The 2022 Annual Action Plan describes how the city intends to use CDBG entitlement funding of $1,483,035 and HOME allocation of $886,915 to address community needs and priorities identified in the City’s 2021-2025 Five-Year Consolidated Plan. The 2022 Annual Action Plan also identifies proposed uses of CDBG and HOME program funds carried forward from prior years and program income which is expected to be received during 2022 (October 1, 2022 – September 30, 2023).

A substantial amendment to the is necessary due to the following changes:

Investment in Our Community

Every year, the City of Boise receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to address a wide range of community development needs, including community improvement projects and projects that focus on low-to-moderate income households.

The funding can also be used to provide public services for low-to-moderate income households.
