As an entitlement community, the City of Chandler receives an annual allocation of Community Development Block Grant and HOME Investment Partnerships Program funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Funds principally support persons with low and moderate income as well as a wide range of community development activities directed toward revitalizing neighborhoods, economic development, and providing improved community facilities and services. As a recipient of federal funding, the City of Chandler is required to submit various reports to remain in compliance.
The Consolidated Plan is for a five year period and helps the City of Chandler to assess affordable housing, 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 HUD formula block grant programs.
Annual Action Plan
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. A draft of the FY 2019-2020 Annual Action Plan is available, and the public is invited to comment on any aspect of this Annual Action Plan. The City of Chandler is holding a public comment period from March 27, 2019, to April 25, 2019. In addition, a public hearing is scheduled for March 27, 2019. A second public hearing is scheduled for April 8, 2019, and a continuation of the public hearing is scheduled for April 11, 2019, to ensure multiple opportunities for input from the community.
