NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Provo City Corporation (“City”) is proposing to amend its 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan.
The public hearing will give the citizens, public agencies, and other interested parties an opportunity to provide comment on the amendment to the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan.
As a recipient of HOME Investment Partnerships Program funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and as the Lead Entity for the Utah Valley HOME Consortium, the City is required to prepare and submit to HUD a Five-Year Consolidated Plan (ConPlan). The ConPlan provides a framework to identify community needs that include: 1) Housing; 2) Homelessness; and 3) Community & Economic Development. Additionally, the ConPlan helps to identify available resources and devise a strategic plan for meeting those needs. The City is proposing the following amendment to its 2015-2019 ConPlan:
The City is proposing to amend the makeup of the Utah Valley HOME Consortium (Consortium) by including the City of Lehi—a Metropolitan City receiving a CDBG entitlement grant—for Federal Fiscal Years 2017, 2018, and 2019.
On November 28, 1990, the United States Congress enacted the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act (Pub. L. 101-625, title II, Sec. 211, Nov. 28, 1990, 104 Stat. 409) Title II of the legislation entitled the HOME Investment Partnerships Act (Act), which authorizes the Secretary of HUD to make funds available to participating jurisdiction for investment to increase the number of families served with decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing and to expand the long-term supply of affordable housing in accordance with the Act.
Under the Act, a consortium of geographically contiguous units of general local government (UGLG), which separately may not qualify to receive HOME funding, may, by entering into a cooperation agreement, join together for the purpose of receiving a HOME allocation and administering the HOME Program as a single Participating Jurisdiction (PJ).
The other members of the Consortium are: City of Orem, Utah County—an Urban County—and Provo City Corporation.
By Lehi City joining the Consortium an estimated additional $30,000 would be made available to fund projects for Program Year 2017.
