Title

Discussion: Review of 2019 Planning Process for the 2020-24 Plan for the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) - “HUD Strategic Plan”.

 

Staff Summary

 

                     The proposed Lake County 2020-24 Plan for the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (“HUD Strategic Plan”) is focused on achieving the following goals: (1) Improve homeless crisis response system; (2) Assist People with Special Needs; (3) Maximize Affordable Housing; and (4) Prioritize Pathways for Economic Mobility.  These goals plus four overlapping needs are illustrated in the attached Graphic of 2020-24 HUD Strategic Plan Needs & Goals.

                     The proposed four HUD Strategic Plan Needs & Goals resulted from over fifty consultations with community agencies, a market analysis and a needs assessment ---all of which were released in the July 17, 2019 agenda of the Lake County Housing & Community Development Commission (HCDC) and discussed at two Public Hearings in 2019.  Two community needs public hearings also were held. Additionally, the attached fair housing “AFH” graphic illustrates how HUD expects the County’s draft 2019/20 Update to the 2014 Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice to influence its HUD Strategic Plan.

                     At its October 18, 2019 meeting, the HCDC approved release in tandem of both a Call for Five-Year Strategic Plan Projects & Proven Housing Programs and an annual application process.  The HCDC-approved policy memos, Grant Funding Allocation Policy and Instructions for the Five-Year Call are attached as HCDC 2020-24 Funding Allocation Guidelines and define the 2020-24 grant-making process.  These documents will be reviewed.

                     Over the next two months, additional planning documents will be released for discussion at HCDC, with two additional public hearings, resulting in completion of a HUD 2020-24 Strategic Plan by Lake County Board in May 2020.  Final grant awards for 2020 will be approved by Lake County Board in June 2020 for submission to HUD.
