Public Hearings Scheduled
On April 17, 2017 beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the downtown fire station, the City Council will hold two public hearings related to the City's Community Development Block Grant and HOME Investment Partnerships programs. The first hearing will consider an amendment to the City's FY 16-17 CDBG/HOME Action Plan; the amendment would rebalance HOME funding between two projects that are also included in the City's draft FY 17-18 Action Plan. The second hearing will consider that draft Action Plan. For more information contact us at email@example.com.
FY 13-14 through FY 17-18 Consolidated Plan and FY 16-17 Action Plan
Staff of the City’s Housing and Neighborhood Services Division, under the direction of the Corvallis Housing and Community Development Advisory Board, have completed a five-year Consolidated Plan to guide the City’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) programs for the years FY 13-14 through FY 17-18. A one-year Action Plan covering FY 16-17 has also been prepared to guide the City’s investment of funding from these two program sources during that fiscal year. The Consolidated Plan, approved by the City Council on July 1, 2013 and HUD on August 15, 2013, is available here: FY 13-14 through FY 17-18 Consolidated Plan. The Action Plan for FY 16-17, approved by the City Council on April 18, 2016, is available here: FY 16-17 Action Plan.

A Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER) that details the City's use of CDBG and HOME resources during FY 15-16 has been submitted to HUD, and is available here.
Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing/Fair Housing Plan
Periodically the City of Corvallis Housing and Neighborhood Services Division conducts research, reviews and analyzes data and existing policies, and reaches out to fair housing resources in an effort to update our Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing and Fair Housing Plan (AI/FHP). This recently updated document forms an important basis for the City's fair housing efforts, and is required of us by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as a recipient of federal Community Development Block Grant and HOME Investment Partnerships program funding. Thoughts or comments on the document are always welcome via e-mail to email@example.com.
Applicant and Grantee Handbooks
Two guidance documents for agencies that intend to apply for or have received allocations of CDBG or HOME funding have been developed. Agencies applying for or currently receiving a capital project allocation should use this guidebook: Capital Project Applicant Handbook. Human Services Fund applicants and recipients will find helpful information here: Human Services Applicant Handbook.
