Citizen Participation Plan
As required by Section 104(a)(2) of the Housing and Community Development Act and by regulations at 24 CFR 570.486(a)(6) the City of Jefferson has a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Citizen Participation Plan. The primary goal of the Plan is to provide citizens, especially low and moderate income citizens of the community, an opportunity to participate in an advisory role in the planning, implementation, and assessment of the programs and projects. The City of Jefferson has revised the Citizen Participation Plan to incorporate requirements of the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Final Rule.
Consolidated Action Plan
The Consolidated Action Plan is designed to help the City of Jefferson to assess their affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions. The Consolidated Plan serves as the framework to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from the CDBG program. The 2014-2018 Consolidated Action Plan is the current Plan being utilized for the CDBG program.
Annual Action Plan
An Annual Action Plan provides details on the City's use of CDBG funds for a given year. The City's program year runs from January 1 through December 31. The City has been directed by HUD to not submit the 2018 Annual Action Plan until the 2018 allocation is released. The timeline for the release of allocation is unknown.
Previous Approved Annual Action Plans:
2017 Annual Action Plan
2016 Annual Action Plan
2015 Annual Action Plan
Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER)
Within 90 days after the end of the program year, the City of Jefferson completes an end-of-year reporting process for the CDBG program. The CAPER explains how the City is carrying out its housing and community development strategies, projects, and activities by providing detailed financial and beneficiary information. To meet citizen participation requirements, the City must make the report available to the public.
Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice
The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) mandated review of impediments to fair housing choice in the public and private sector. The AI includes a review of demographic and housing market data, legislation, regulations affecting fair housing, public education and outreach efforts. The AI allows the City to identify any existing impediments or barriers to fair housing choice and to develop an action plan containing strategies to mitigate such barriers.
