Proposed Action Plan Amendment 21

The CDBG-DR Action Plan includes programs to build and support housing, businesses, coastal resiliency, infrastructure and other City services. In total, the City's CDBG-DR allocation amounts to $4,213,876,000.

The City released proposed Action Plan Amendment 21 on Friday, February 7th. The proposed Action Plan Amendment 21 is available for review here and public comment here.

Amendment 21 proposes the following changes:

  • Reallocating $70 million of CDBG-DR between programs, including $50 million to the Build It Back Single Family program
  • Increasing the threshold for a substantial amendment from $1 million to $15 million to allow for allocations to quickly match actual program costs and address remaining needs

Amendments serve as a way to adjust both the CDBG-DR and CDBG-NDR Action Plans in order to add or clarify information, change or add additional Programs or program benefits, or to reduce, increase, or reallocate funding, as appropriate. Amendments are divided into two categories, Substantial and Technical.

Substantial Amendments are characterized by either an addition or deletion of any CDBG-DR or CDBG-NDR funded program, any funding change greater than $1 million, or any change in the designated beneficiaries of a program in the relevant Action Plan. Substantial amendments will be available on this site for public review and comment for at least 30 days. In addition, the City will hold at least one public hearing during the public comment period to incorporate public input into any proposed changes.

Technical Amendments are defined as minor changes that do not materially alter the activities or eligible beneficiaries. Technical Amendments are not subject to the public notification and public comment requirements.
