The City of Staunton will receive funds through a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the approximate amount of $354,433. The City expects to receive CDBG grant funds in this approximate amount annually.
The annual disbursement of these grant funds will be guided by a Five-Year Consolidated Plan (FY2019-2023), Annual Action Plan for FY2019 and Citizen Participation Plan.
The plans describe how the City will use the funds to help to improve the housing and living conditions of its residents, especially very low and low-income households, homeless persons and persons with special needs. The plans can also be used to upgrade and improve public and community facilities in the City, improve and expand public services for the residents of City, and promote economic development opportunities for all residents.
The Annual Action Plan outlines how the City intends to spend the grant funds for FY 2019. The Consolidated Plan will serve as a blueprint for the expenditure of these federal funds in the City of Staunton from October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2024.
