CDBG Program

Community Development Block Grant General Information

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program provides annual grants on a formula basis to states, cities, and counties to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons. The program is authorized under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383, as amended 42 U.S.C. 5301 et seq.

The City of Elk Grove became an entitlement jurisdiction in 2003 and receives federal CDBG funds directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

See the planning documents below to learn more about the City's use of these funds.

Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports

The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is the annual report on the use of the CDBG funds and progress toward meeting CDBG goals in the prior fiscal year. The report is due to HUD each year on September 30th. A 15-day public comment period is usually held each year in September.

Action Plans

The Action Plan describes the projects and programs the City will carry out to meet its goals over the course of the fiscal year. It also serves as the budget document and includes information on how the City will meet the needs of special populations.

The 2020-21 Action Plan is included in the 2020-25 Consolidated Plan.

Consolidated Plans

The Consolidated Plan sets forth goals and strategies related to the City's CDBG funding over a five-year period. The Consolidated Plan serves the following functions:

  1. A planning document for the City, which builds on a participatory process;
  2. An application for federal funds under HUD's CDBG formula grants programs;
  3. A strategy to be followed in carrying out HUD's programs; and
  4. An allocation of funds to specific projects for the first fiscal year of the Consolidated Plan.

Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI)

The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) Report is a planning process for local governments and public housing agencies to take meaningful actions to overcome historic patterns of segregation, promote fair housing choice, and foster inclusive communities that are free from discrimination. The AI Report is required of states, counties, cities, and public housing authorities that receive federal housing and community development funding. The goal of the AI Report is to help communities analyze challenges to fair housing choice and establish goals and priorities to address fair housing barriers. The AI Report was utilized to help inform the City's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Consolidated Plan.

The 2020 AI summarizes the state of fair housing and the conditions which might affect the ability of a household to access the housing of its choice. It is organized into several sections providing an executive summary; information on the demographic patterns of the region; an analysis on disproportionate housing needs and publicly supported housing; an examination into access to opportunity; discussion on the housing experience and access to opportunity for residents with disabilities; and a report of community engagement findings. It concludes with discussion on the goals and recommended strategies for regional partners to take to address fair housing and economic opportunity barriers.

The study was conducted for the Sacramento Valley region as a joint effort among the following entities: the cities of Citrus Heights, Davis, Elk Grove, Folsom, Galt, Isleton, Rancho Cordova, Rocklin, Roseville, Sacramento, West Sacramento, and Woodland; the Housing Authority of Sacramento; Sacramento County; the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency; and Yolo County Housing.
