The City of Richland Consolidated Plan establishes needs, resources, priorities and proposed activities to be undertaken with respect to the Community Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Programs along with other U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs. It guides the allocation of housing and community development resources for a five year period and is updated annually through the action plan process. The plan was developed through a careful community planning process with the involvement of primary community stakeholders and agencies.
The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) is a HUD mandated fair housing planning document through CDBG and HOME requirements. Each jurisdiction is required to further fair housing and fair housing planning by conducting an analysis of impediments to fair housing choice in the public and private sector. Jurisdictions must take appropriate actions to overcome the effects of any impediments identified and to maintain records that record and reflect the analysis and action taken in this regard. The AI is conducted in conjunction with the preparation of the Five-Year Consolidated Plan.
The purpose of Tri-Cities HOME Consortium Citizen Participation Plan is to create meaningful opportunities and encourage citizen participation in the development of the City’s CDBG and HOME Consortium Consolidated Plan, Annual Action Plans, amendments to the plan and performance reports.
The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Richland’s Annual Action Plan. The Action Plan lays out the actions, activities and the specific funding that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified by the Consolidated Plan.
The Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER) provides a meaningful overview of the activities completed in the project year by Richland CDBG and Tri-Cities HOME Consortium HOME programs and indicates the progress in meeting the goals, objectives and areas of high priority identified in the consolidated plan. The CAPER report is presented for public comment and submitted to HUD for review and approval by March 30 of each year.
