2013-2018 CDBG Consolidated Plan and 2013-14 CDBG Action Plan
The Consolidated Plan is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in order for local jurisdictions to receive federal housing and community development funds under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The overall goal of the CDBG program is to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing, providing a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities.
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 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.
