In Fiscal Year 2018-2019, the City of Columbia expects to receive continued federal funding through three U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) entitlement grants: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA).  In order to receive these HUD grants, the City of Columbia must submit an Annual Action Plan to HUD that provides the community needs, resources, priorities, and proposed activities with regard to housing, community development, economic development, and public services. The City has begun development of its FY2018-2019 Action Plan, which is due to HUD on or before May 15, 2018.


The proposed FY2018-2019 Annual Action Plan is a component of the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan that identifies resources and strategies to assist in meeting the housing and community development needs and includes plans for monitoring performance. Financial resources the City intends to have available in new entitlement grants only, are based on last year’s funding level. Estimates include $1,026,764 in CDBG funds, $617,617 in HOME funds and $1,406,384 in HOPWA funds. Other available funding sources include prior year entitlement 2014 -2017 ($199,650), estimated CDBG Revolving Loan Fund (PI) $1,124,909 and HOME Program Income $250,000.
