A. Subject of Hearing:
Draft Tacoma-Lakewood HOME Consortium 2022-2023 Annual Action Plan
The Cities of Tacoma and Lakewood intend to adopt the Tacoma-Lakewood HOME Consortium 2022- 2023 Annual Action Plan (AAP), providing an annual spending plan for federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grants to address housing, community, and economic development needs in both cities. As the lead entity of the HOME consortium, the Tacoma City Council will take final action on HOME funded activities for both jurisdictions.
CITY OF TACOMA
Proposed use of funds recommended for Tacoma City Council approval is based upon federal funding that includes:
* Community Development Block Grant (CDBG): $2,460,177
* HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME): $1,410,150
* Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG): $215,615
At the time the AAP was drafted, HUD had not released the actual allocations for CDBG, HOME, and ESG programs for the 2022-2023 program year. The City of Tacoma estimated project spending based on prior year awards. Project awards will be adjusted to reflect final allocations when they are released by HUD. Recommended activities will be implemented as part of the AAP beginning July 1, 2022.
