May 23, 2016:

NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETINGS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE 2016-2020 FIVE YEAR CONSOLIDATED PLAN AND 2016-2017 ANNUAL ACTION PLAN

The City of Port Orange is an entitlement community that is eligible to receive federal funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The City expects to receive $268,806 in CDBG funds during FY 2016-2017. These funds will be used for projects and activities that principally benefit low- and moderate income persons. Eligible activities include affordable housing related projects, public facilities and infrastructure improvements, public services, and economic development.

In order to receive the CDBG funds from HUD, the City must prepare a Five-year Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan. These plans will outline how the funds will be used to address the housing and community development needs of the City including the goals, proposed outcomes, actions, and activities that will lead to a viable and inclusive community.

The City of Port Orange will hold a public meeting to ensure that residents and community stakeholders play a role in determining how the CDBG funds will be expended. Input is sought on housing and community development needs and priorities. The City will also hold a second public meeting to provide information on the proposed Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan including proposed activities and estimated funding amounts based on the established priorities.
Persons living and working in the City of Port Orange are encouraged to attend and participate in these discussions. The location and dates of the meetings are 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.
