Under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, the City of El Centro invites citizens to participate in the preparation of the FY 2020-2021 One Year Action Plan. The One-Year Action Plan consists of the proposed activities to be funded through the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). The CDBG funds are for community development improvements to benefit low and moderate-income residents. During FY 2020-2021, the City of El Centro will receive $566,707 in Community Development Block Grant funds. The City also anticipates expending approximately $34,059 for fiscal year 2020-2021 (July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021) in State Program Income generated by previous State awarded grants. Therefore, a total of $600,766 will beavailable for program year 2020-2021. Pursuant to federal regulations, every CDBG activity must meet the requirements for one of the national objectives: benefit low and moderate-income persons; prevent or eliminate slum or blight; or meet an urgent need that poses a serious or immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community.
The public review and written comment period begins April 8, 2020 and ends May 7, 2020.
