Consolidated Plan

Notices/Announcements

Consolidated Plan One-Year Action Plans are the City of New York's annual application to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Community Planning and Development (HUD-CPD) for formula entitlement grant funds from four (4) different entitlement programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), respectively.

These federal funds are used to address affordable housing, homelessness, supportive housing services and community development needs for programs which were conceived either to directly or indirectly benefit low- and moderate-income households.

The City’s Consolidated Plan Program Year is from January 1 to December 31. The Action Plan is released at various times throughout the year. The Proposed Plan is released in October and November of the prior year (Public Comment; and, Submission version, respectively). The (approved) version in January of the Program Year, and an amended version in August.

In addition, formula entitlement grantee localities are required to submit a full Consolidated Plan every five (5) years. The full Consolidated Plan consists of the City's needs assessment, (housing) market analysis, five-year strategic plan, and annual grant funding application. The 2015 Consolidated Plan was the City of New York's submission to HUD-CPD of its five-year strategic plan for Consolidated Plan Years 2015-2019 and its proposed One-Year Action Plan for 2015.

Substantial Amendment to the Citizen Participation Plan
Pursuant to 24 CFR 91.105(a)(3) of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Consolidated Plan Regulations regarding citizen participation, the New York City Department of City Planning (DCP) is announcing the public comment period for a proposed change to the City’s Consolidated Plan Citizen Participation Plan (CPP) that may be incorporated into the consolidated planning process after consideration of the questions and concerns of interested agencies, Community Boards, groups and the general public.

The public comment period that will begin June 11, 2018 and extend for 30 days ending on close of business July 10, 2018.

Proposed Substantial Amendment:
The City of New York proposes to substantially amend its Consolidated Plan Citizen Participation Plan in preparation for its comprehensive fair housing planning process and related public engagement activities. Led by the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) in partnership with the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), this fair housing planning process will encompass a broad range of public engagement activities and will culminate in the City’s Analysis of Impediments (AI) or Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) submission, depending on the given federal requirements. The City will integrate the data analysis, community input, and goals developed through this fair housing planning process into its Consolidated Plan. (Note: Because the City’s requirements to submit an AI or an AFH may change overtime, this document will use the term “fair housing planning process” or “submission” to stand in for specifically referencing the AI or AFH.)

The City’s public engagement for the fair housing planning process will inform the City’s understanding of current fair housing conditions, the prioritization of contributing factors and impediments to fair housing choice, and the development of measurable goals and strategies. The fair housing planning process will include targeted engagement opportunities to collect input from community-based organizations, faith-based groups, community development corporations, disability advocates, legal service providers, affordable housing developers, private sector representatives, academic researchers, and constituency groups, as well as New York City residents, with a focus on priority populations identified by HUD.

Engagement activities may include, but are not limited to, policy roundtables, focus-group style conversations, public workshops, resident surveys, and digital outreach and engagement. Engagement activities will take place in neighborhoods across the five boroughs with reasonable accommodations provided to ensure events and materials are accessible in multiple languages and for New Yorkers with disabilities.

In compliance with HUD guidelines, the fair housing planning process will include the following provisions:

  • The City plans to make HUD-provided data available to the public by referencing the HUD data website on the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development website and any additional website(s) developed for the fair housing planning process. This information will be available on the websites starting at least 12 months before the publishing of the proposed submission, and will remain available as long as the data on HUD’s website remains publically accessible. The City plans to also make analysis of the HUD-provided data available at a range of engagement activities that may include policy roundtables, focus-group style conversations, and public workshops. The City also plans to use supplemental information in the fair housing planning process and submission. As those non-HUD sources are identified and analyzed, information will be made available on the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development website and any additional website(s) developed for the fair housing planning process, as well as engagement activities.
  • The City plans to publish the proposed submission that comes out of the fair housing planning process at least 60 days in advance of the final HUD submission. Copies of the submission will be made available on the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development’s website and any additional website(s) developed for the fair housing planning process. The City will also provide free copies of the submission to residents and groups that request it. The City will provide at least 45 days to receive comments from citizens on the plan before it is submitted to HUD. The City will hold at least one public hearing in advance of publishing the proposed submission to inform the development of the submission, and at least one public hearing during the proposed submission comment period.
  • All public meetings that are part of the fair housing planning process will be held at times and locations that are convenient to the population and will provide accommodation for persons with a disability, including a sign language interpreter. Live translation and translated materials will be provided at any public meetings that are part of the fair housing planning process where it is reasonably expected that a significant number of non-English speaking residents will attend.
  • The city will provide reasonable notice of Consolidated Plan-related public comment periods, and/or related public hearings. See itemized paragraph #7 in the existing Citizen Participation Plan for more detail.
  • The fair housing planning process will include consideration of any comments or views received in writing, or orally at the public hearings, in preparing the draft and final submission. Attached to the respective reports will be a summary of the comments or views, including comments or views not accepted and the reasons for non-acceptance. The HUD requirement that a substantive written response to every written citizen complaint be made within an established period of time (within 15 days where practicable) will be met within the existing structure.
  • The city plans to publish the final submission for the fair housing planning process on the NYC Department of City Planning website, the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development website, and any additional website(s) developed for the fair housing planning process. The City will also provide free copies of the submission to residents and groups that request it.
  • Revisions after submission to HUD will be required if a material change occurs. A material change is a change in circumstances in the jurisdiction of a program participant that affects the information on which the submission is based to the extent that the analysis, the fair housing contributing factors, or the priorities and goals of the submission no longer reflect actual circumstances. Revisions will also be made if HUD's written notification specifies a material change that requires the revision. The City will provide at least 30 days to receive comments from citizens on the revisions before it is submitted to HUD. The revised submission will include consideration of any comments or views received in writing in preparing the final revised submission. Attached to the revised submission will be a summary of the comments or views, including comments or views not accepted and the reasons for non-acceptance.
  • Reasonable and timely access to information and records relating to the fair housing planning process will be assured as it has been during the Consolidated Plan process.
  • Technical assistance will be made available to groups representative of persons of low- and moderate-income that request such assistance in commenting on the AFH, including Community Boards, fair housing advocacy organizations, community development corporations,  affordable housing developers, and others. 

Background:
The City originally developed this fair housing planning processto meet the Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) community participation requirements, as described in the 2015 Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Final Rule. The City will use this process for all upcoming AI or AFH submissions.

Public Comment:
In accordance with section 91.105(c), the City must provide its citizens with reasonable notice and an opportunity to comment on substantial amendments to the CPP.

DCP is inviting all interested agencies, Community Boards, groups and persons to provide comments on the proposed amendment to the CPP.

Information on the Formulation of the City of New York’s Proposed One-Year Action Plan for its 2018 Consolidated Plan Program Year:

At the start of the City’s 2018 Consolidated Plan Program Year HUD had yet to announce the City’s 2018 formula entitlement grant award amounts. Therefore, the City intended to use its 2017 Grant award amounts as an estimate to formulate its proposed 2018 projects (Estimated/Flat Level Funding). 

However, on January 30, 2018, HUD released a notice instructing all formula entitlement grantee cities not to submit their Proposed 2018 One-Year Action Plan until after HUD announced their respective FFY2018 entitlement grant awards and the cities had the opportunity to revise their 2018 Action Plan’s proposed activities to reflect the funds made available.

With the passage of the FFY18 Appropriations Act (signed into law on March 23, 2018), it is expected that HUD will announce the entitlement grant awards nationally no later than May 21, 2018.

After the announcement, New York City will revise its Proposed 2018 Action Plan to reflect is actual entitlement grants award and subsequently release it for public comment on this webpage.

The City of New York’s Proposed One-Year Action Plan for its 2017 Consolidated Plan Program Year, approved by US-HUD (Approved Version).

New York City submitted its Proposed 2017 One-Year Action Plan to HUD-CPD on August 9, 2017 after fulfilling its Consolidated Plan citizen participation requirements by conducting:

  • A fourteen (14) day public comment period on the Proposed Action Plan reflective of the City’s actual grant allocations from July 25, 2017 to August 7, 2017; and,
  • a public hearing on Friday, August 4, 2017, in Spector Hall, 22 Reade Street, Manhattan.

Comments received by the end of the comment period (close of business) regarding the use of these federal funds were to be summarized and Agencies' responses incorporated into this document for submission to HUD. However, no public comments were received.
