The City of Albuquerque’s Family and Community Services Department is starting to develop its 2018-2022 Consolidated Plan.  The Consolidated Plan is a five-year plan required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  It is designed to help states and local jurisdictions to assess their affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions. The consolidated planning process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus the following funding sources: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program,HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program, and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program.  This process will result in a plan for approximately $34 million in HUD funds over five years.  Examples of previous projects and programs within the city supported by these funds include: 1) Public facility improvements; 2) Down payment assistance for first time home buyers; 3) Home owner rehabilitation programs; 4) Affordable housing development; 5) Small business development; 6) Health services; 7) Eviction prevention; 9) Senior meals; and 10) Emergency shelter services.

 

We are starting the consolidated planning process with a Community Outreach Week to obtain input from the public as to their priorities.  Attached are notices with information on the upcoming community meetings for the 2018-2022 Consolidated Plan.  We would like as much public input as possible, and we hope you can distribute this information to your neighborhood association and encourage participation.

 

Thank you so much in advance for your assistance.
