Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) General Information
The City of Elk Grove became an entitlement jurisdiction in 2003 and will receive federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The United States Congress established the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program in 1974. The national objectives of the program, administered nationally by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are to:
- provide decent housing,
- create a suitable living environment, and
- expand economic opportunities principally for low and moderate income people.
In order to receive these funds, the City must prepare Consolidated Plan documents, which are reviewed by HUD. The Consolidated Plan documents include:
- Consolidated Plan
- Annual Action Plan
- Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)
- Citizen Participation Plan
- Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI)
The Consolidated Plan is the guiding document for the City’s Community Development Block Grant Program. The Consolidated Plan is typically a five-year plan designed to identify and address the needs of individuals and households that earn less than 80 percent of the area median income (AMI). This group is referred to as the target income group in Consolidated Plan documents. The Plan is also designed to address the needs of areas in Elk Grove, where there is a higher concentration of target income households. These areas are referred to as CDBG Target Areas. The Consolidated Plan is the guiding document for the City’s CDBG Program.
The Action Plan is an annual plan, which implements the Consolidated Plan each year. It identifies how CDBG funds will be used that year and how those uses correspond to the overall the objectives in the Consolidated Plan.
The City of Elk Grove encourages citizen participation. The Citizen Participation Plan identifies the City’s efforts and policies designed to involve residents, special needs groups, service providers, and especially target income residents in the CBDG program and the development of Consolidated Plan documents.
As a recipient of federal housing and community development funds, the City of Elk Grove is required to conduct an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) and to periodically review that analysis and update it as necessary. The last AI relevant to Elk Grove was conducted by Sacramento County in 2004. The AI is one of the several ways in which a grantee must meet its obligation to affirmatively further fair housing. This obligation applies to the City of Elk Grove as a recipient of federal CDBG funds.
The analysis summarizes the state of fair housing and the conditions which might affect the ability of a household to access the housing of its choice. This analysis is organized into several sections providing an introduction to the document, a review of the previous analysis, information on the character of the community, and housing market trends. It then has several sections that discuss specific elements of fair housing choice. It concludes with a summary analysis and the identification of impediments to fair housing choice with recommended actions to address them.
