Sierra Vista’s participation in the program
The City of Sierra Vista is a participating jurisdiction in the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The CDBG program distributes federal funds to states, counties and urban cities to fulfill the goals of the program to:
- Provide decent, safe, and sanitary housing
- Provide a suitable living environment
- Expand economic opportunities principally for low and moderate-income persons
The City Council approved the City’s first Five-Year Consolidated Plan in 2014 to identify the community’s needs, resources, priorities and procedures for managing the CDBG program. In addition, each year City Council approves the current year’s Action Plan, which includes objectives and outcomes identified in the plan, an evaluation of past performance and activities to be undertaken in the next year.
The City’s first Analysis of Impediments (AI) for Fair Housing Choice was completed in 2014. The AI helps build public support for fair housing efforts providing essential, specific, and detailed information and data to municipal officials and staff, policy makers, housing developers, lenders, and fair housing advocates.
