The City of National City receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership Act (HOME) program funds, as a direct entitlement from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The CDBG and HOME programs are primarily designed to assist low- to moderate-income households by providing affordable housing, revitalizing neighborhoods, and by creating employment opportunities through economic development.
In order for National City to qualify for its CDBG and HOME entitlement funding, it must comply with an array of statutory and regulatory requirements, such as the development of the: Five-Year Consolidated Plan, Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice, Annual Action Plan, and Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report. Provided below is a summary of the information provided in each report.
- FIVE-YEAR CONSOLIDATED PLAN (Con Plan)
- ANALYSIS OF IMPEDIMENTS TO FAIR HOUSING CHOICE (AI)
- ANNUAL ACTION PLAN (AAP)
- CONSOLIDATED ANNUAL PERFORMANCE AND EVALUATION REPORT (CAPER)
- CITIZEN AND COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION PLAN (CCPP)
FIVE-YEAR CONSOLIDATED PLAN (CON Plan)
In order to qualify for CDBG and HOME program funding, local jurisdictions must comply with an array of statutory and regulatory requirements. One such requirement involves the development of a Five-Year Consolidated Plan (Con Plan) that identifies specific Housing and Community Development needs, priorities, goals, and strategies. The Con-Plan must also stipulate how funding will be allocated to address these stated housing and community development needs
The Con Plan, amended in the spring of 2016, was developed in accordance with Sections 91.100 through 91.230 of HUD’s Consolidated Plan regulations; and it was designed consistent with the City’s General Plan, particularly the Housing Element. In addition, the Con-Plan was developed with an extensive public participation process that involved community stakeholders, housing and service providers, community leaders, city departments, and National City residents.

ANALYSIS OF IMPEDIMENTS (AI) TO FAIR HOUSING CHOICE
HUD requires that jurisdictions receiving CDBG and HOME program funding take actions to affirmatively further fair housing choices. Jurisdictions must report on such activities by completing an AI every three to five years, in alignment with the Con Plan schedule. In general, the AI is a review of the impediments to fair housing choice in both the public and private sectors. The City of National City participated in the San Diego Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice, prepared by Veronica Tam and Associates, Inc.
The City of National city also participates in the San Diego Regional Alliance for Fair Housing (SD RAFF). Read more about SDRAFF by visiting www.nationalcityca.gov/fairhousing.
ANNUAL ACTION PLAN (AAP)
The purpose of the AAP is to review and update those assessments presented in the Con-Plan; to inventory resources that will be available during a given program year (fiscal year); and to identify the specific actions that will be taken in that program year to meet the city’s Housing and Community Development needs, and to implement the strategies set forth in the Con Plan. The AAP is submitted to HUD annually, prior to May 15th.
In accordance with the federal regulations at 24 CFR, Part 91, the City of National City is required to prepare and submit an Annual Action Plan for its Housing and Community Development Programs to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

CONSOLIDATED ANNUAL PERFORMANCE AND EVALUATION REPORT (CAPER)
At the close of each fiscal year (program year), the City is required to submit a CAPER to HUD by September 28. This report illustrates the actual accomplishments achieved during the program year. The CAPER allows HUD, local officials, and citizens to assess the use of available resources and to assess the efforts made towards achieving the goals and objectives identified in the Con Plan, AI, and the AAP.

As required by The Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) for the Consolidated Plan (24 CFR Part 91 Sec. 91.105), the City must adopt a Citizen Participation Plan (CPP) setting forth the City’s policies and procedures for citizen participation. This CPP establishes standards for the City to provide for and encourage citizens and entitlement grant beneficiaries to participate in the planning, execution, and evaluation of the Con Plan, the AAPs, and the CAPERs.
In addition, HUD Final Regulations for the Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) requires the City to adopt a Community Participation Plan (CoPP) setting forth the City’s policies and procedures for the solicitation of views and recommendations from members of the community and other interested parties, consideration of the views and recommendations received, and incorporation of such views and recommendations into decisions and outcomes (24 CFR §5.152). Generally speaking, the CoPP policies and procedures mirror those of the CPP, with the addition of requirements regarding HUD-provided data and other supplemental information and required consultation with other public and private agencies.
This Citizen and Community Participation Plan serves to meet the federal requirements described above concurrently.
