The City of Boise invites the citizens of Boise to provide input on the Program Year 2019 Housing and Community Development Annual Action Plan. The Plan identifies Boise’s affordable housing and community development needs including strategies to address those needs.

The Annual Action Plan describes how the City intends to use CDBG entitlement funding of $1,367,330 and a HOME allocation of $720,129 to address community needs and priorities identified in the City’s 2016-2020 Five-Year Consolidated Housing and Community Development Plan. The 2019 Annual Action Plan also identifies proposed uses of CDBG and HOME program funds carried forward from prior years and program income.
