Community Development Block Grant Advisory Committee

Purpose

Community Development Block Grant regulations, as found in 24 CFR 91.100-91.115, requires all Entitlement grantees to certify that they are following a Citizen Participation Plan.  To comply with requirements, the City formed the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Advisory Committee, and with input from the Neighborhood Action Sub-committee, will work with the Public Involvement Department staff to provide input in the development of the Consolidated Plan, any amendments to the plan, and the annual performance report. 

Members

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Advisory Committee consists of seven members.  Five of the members are appointed by the City Council and the two remaining members are appointed by the Neighborhood Action Sub-committee from the Sub-committee membership.  The Neighborhood Action Sub-committee consists of one resident from each of the 14 defined neighborhoods within the officially designated Revitalization Area.  The Public Involvement Department staff will work with these neighborhoods to identify residents interested in serving on the Sub-committee.  All appointees to the CDBG Advisory Committee shall serve four-year terms.
