The Atlanta City Council Community Development/Human Services Committee will discuss a four-year HUD grant and fair housing.

The Atlanta City Council Community Development/Human Services Committee will hold a work session to review the FY 20-24 HUD Entitlement grant consolidated plan and analysis of impediments to fair housing, according to a press release. The meeting is set for 1 to 2 p.m. Friday, March 13 at City Hall, 55 Trinity Ave., second floor, in Committee Room 1.

The Consolidated Plan is designed to help states and local jurisdictions to assess their affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions. The consolidated planning process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from the CPD formula block grant programs: Community Development Block Grant Program, HOME Investment Partnerships Program, Housing Trust Fund Program, Emergency Solutions Grant Program, and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS Program.

The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans, which provide a concise summary of the actions, activities, and the specific federal and non-federal resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified by the Consolidated Plan. Grantees report on accomplishments and progress toward Consolidated Plan goals in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report.
