Proposed Housing and Community Development Strategic Consolidated Five-Year Plan SFY2021-2025 and State Fiscal Year 2021 Annual Action Plan (AAP)
The public is invited to participate in the development of State of Alaska’s SFY2021 Consolidated Housing and Community Development Annual Action Plan (HCD), and the SFY2021-2025 five-year Strategic Plan.
The Annual Action Plan and the five-year Strategic Plan are prerequisites to receive federal funding for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, the National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF), the Emergency Solutions Grant Program (ESG) and the HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME). The geographic areas covered by the Strategic Plan are all areas of the State outside of Anchorage. The five-year strategy (SFY2021-2025) will be adopted in 2020. The five-year strategy provides general principles and priorities and is implemented by a series of one-year action plans.
The SFY2021 Annual Action Plan is the first annual implementation of the proposed 5-Year HCD Plan. The draft specifically details how CDBG, ESG, HTF and HOME annual funding allocations will be used to carry out the strategy of the HCD Plan. It includes information on state programs that enhance these HUD programs.
The SFY2021 Annual Action Plan and the five-year Strategic Plan (draft) will be available for public comment from March 6, 2020 through close of business (5:00 p.m. Alaska time) on April 7, 2020.
