that will be implemented with HUD grant funds. The program year is July 1st to June 30th of the following year. Projects are selected that meet 5-year Strategic Plan goals and objectives. The Action Plan describes the use of funds for the fourth year of the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan, including activities and budgets that address the needs and priorities established in the Plan. Priorities include activities addressing affordable and decent housing, homelessness, special needs, and overall community development needs. The development and implementation of the plan is a coordinated effort with neighborhood groups, private sector contractors, developers, non-profit organizations, City departments, neighboring jurisdictions, and regional planning groups.
