Agenda Item
Discuss and take appropriate action on the 2019-2023 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Consolidated Plan, 2019 Action Plan and updated Citizen Participation Plan.
Background
Williamson County has been awarded a community development block grant (CDBG) FY19 funding allocation of $1,467,836 to successfully support community development and affordable housing efforts for low and moderate-income areas throughout the County. This is a request for the approval of the 2019 Annual Action Plan which lists specific projects to be funded in 2019 and a request for the approval of the Consolidated Plan which describes goals, objectives and the types of activities to be potentially funded over the next five years. The priorities listed in the 5 year Consolidated Plan were approved by the Court on April 23, 2019.
 A statement was added to the current Citizen Participation Plan (approved by Court on November 14, 2017) that would allow the County to fund emergency projects in a timelier manner.  The statement that was added is:
In the Event of a Disaster
 In the event of a federally declared disaster where program funds covered by this Plan may be expended to carry out eligible activities to address the County’s disaster response, the County’s requirements under this Plan will be streamlined in accordance with any/all applicable HUD waivers, to include: 
 a)      A 7-day public display and comment period to amend the Con Plan
 b)      A minimum of one public hearing shall be held to receive comments on the proposed amendment 
The documents were approved by Commissioners Court on June 25, 2019 and were made available for a 30-day public comment period.  A public hearing was held on July 16, 2019.  Three individuals attended.  This is a request for final approval.
