Program Year 2024-2025 Annual Action Plan & 2023-2027 HUD Consolidated Plan Substantial Amendment

As a grant recipient of federal funds through the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the City of Gainesville will have the opportunity to support housing and community revitalization efforts, promote economic development and investments in underserved neighborhoods, and provide essential services benefitting low-income and vulnerable populations.

For the 2024-2025 program year, the city expects to have available $1,386,148 of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds and $548,431 of HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funds. Grant allocations can be used to provide decent and affordable housing, reduce homelessness, support a suitable living environment for all residents, provide essential services, and promote economic opportunities.

To receive grant funds, the city must prepare an Annual Action Plan which includes a strategy for addressing needs and outlines the proposed budget for the city's use of HUD funds towards eligible activities. In addition, the city will amend funding allocations previously set in the 2023-2027 HUD Consolidated Plan to include additional activities to better address pressing community needs.

The city invites residents, housing and homeless partners, and other stakeholders to join us to help identify community assets, strengths, and gaps and determine the best use of funds for community change. The city encourages participation by all neighbors, especially very low-income residents, minorities, non-English speaking persons and persons with mobility, visual or hearing impairments.
