30-DAY PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD AND PUBLIC HEARINGS FOR THE
CITY OF FOUNTAIN VALLEY FY 2023-24 ANNUAL ACTION PLAN
The City of Fountain Valley (City) Housing and Community Development (HCD) Department, in accordance with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations, has prepared its draft FY 2023-2024 Action Plan for Community Planning and Development Programs (Action Plan). The Action Plan describes the projects/activities proposed by the City utilizing available Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.
As of the writing of this notice, HUD has not released the actual CDBG funding allocation for FY 2023-24 therefore the entitlement has been estimated utilizing the current year’s grant allocation. For FY 2023-24, we are estimating the City will receive $319,886 in federal CDBG program funds. This will be combined with $180,114 in carryover funds from previous years, for a total CDBG program budget of $500,000. Once the actual funding from HUD is available, the allocations for each activity will be adjusted to reflect the actual Grant amount.
The following is a summary of the activities that the City is proposing to implement utilizing available FY 2023-24 CDBG program funding:
Neighborhood Revitalization Programs $277,786
Public Service Agency Grants $47,979
Public Service Agency – COVID Response (CV) $30,258
Code Enforcement $80,000
Administrative and Fair Housing Activities $63,977
