Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program

May 23, 2016:


Purpose and Summary of the Consolidated Plan
The Consolidated Plan and the 2016 Annual Action Plan constitutes the grant application to the U.S. Department of Urban Development (HUD) for federal funding under the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). The Consolidated Plan was developed with input from residents and community stakeholders as well as a needs assessment and market analysis which guided the identification of the City’s priority needs.

The priority needs were assigned a “High” priority or “Low” priority based on the availability of federal funds, the potential to leverage other funding sources, and organizational capacity. The City of Port Orange’s high priority are: 1) Public improvements and infrastructure; 2) Homelessness; and 3) Economic Development.

Summary of the Action Plan
The FY 2016-2017 Action Plan outlines goals and projected to be implemented during the year (October 1, 2016 - September 30, 2017). The City anticipates it will receive $268,806 in CDBG funding which will be allocated as follows:

The Community Development Block Grant program is administered nationally by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Federal monies are awarded annually to cities and counties based upon a formula for activities designed to improve the quality of life within communities by providing decent, safe and sanitary housing, a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities.  Primary beneficiaries of CDBG funds must be low and moderate-income households.  These are defined as a family whose annual income does not exceed 80% of the median income for the area.   The CDBG program is authorized under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383, as amended; 42 U.S.C.-5301 et seq.  The City of Port Orange became a CDBG entitlement community in 2006.

CDBG activities selected by a community for implementation must further the national objectives of improving the quality of life for low and moderate income persons; aid in the prevention or elimination of slum and blight; and meet a need having a particular urgency.  Based upon a five (5) year Consolidated Plan adopted locally, communities may use CDBG funds that are allocated to them for the following:  Acquisition of land and/or buildings; disposition of land or buildings; installation or construction of a public facility; clearance and demolition; housing services; homeownership assistance; rehabilitation of properties; code enforcement; historic preservation; lead-based paint testing, evaluation, reduction and clearance; public services; economic development and planning and administration.
