BACKGROUND:

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) annually awards grants to entitlement community grantees through the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). These funds are intended to help communities accomplish HUD's overall goals by carrying out a wide range of community development activities directed toward revitalizing neighborhoods, economic development, and providing improved community facilities and services. The program is principally targeted toward assisting low- and moderate-income persons.

The City of Goleta became an entitlement grantee in 2004. As a requirement of the CDBG program, the City prepared a 2004-2009 Consolidated Plan to set forth the City's intent to pursue HUD's overall goals. In 2009, the City completed an update to this Plan and produced a 2009-2014 Consolidated Plan. Recently the City Council adopted the new five-year Consolidated Plan covering the period from 2014-2019.

The 2014-2019 Consolidated Plan outlines the City’s strategy for pursuing the overall goals of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide decent housing; to establish and maintain a suitable living environment; and to expand economic revitalization opportunities. HUD regulations require that the needs assessment and housing and community development strategy cover a 3-5 year planning period. The Consolidated Plan also contains identifiable benchmarks for measuring progress through the goals, objectives and community development strategies to meet the City's housing needs and to provide services to the low-income, homeless and special needs populations within the City.

Each year the City is required to prepare an annual plan which includes one-year goals and objectives, and sets forth funding allocations for activities to be carried out in the program year. Activities carried out by other agencies are done so through CDBG grants to sub-recipients.
