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 (Con-Plan), Analysis of Impediments (AI) to Fair Housing Choice, Annual Action Plan (AAP), and Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). Provided below is a summary of the information provided in each report.
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 prepared in the spring of 2005 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 CHOICEHUD 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 Cotton/Bridges/Associates in February of 2005.
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.
Notice is hereby given by the City of National City that the draft Annual Action Plan for FY 2011-2012 has been prepared. The Consolidated Annual Action Plan for FY 2011-2012 outlines how the City plans to expend an estimated $1,188,660 in federal Community Development Block Grant funds (CDBG) and $636,617 in HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program funds. In addition to the funding sources noted above, the City intends to reallocate an estimated $476,988 of CDBG funds from previous year activities and $38,325 in CDBG Program income. 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 30th. 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.

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PLAN (PPP)An integral component in the development of the Con-Plan, AI, AAP, and the CAPER reports is the public participation process. Included in the Con-Plan, is the City’s Public Participation Plan, which outlines the measures taken to facilitate public participation. The PPP provides residents and community stakeholders with numerous opportunities to participate at various phases in the development of these planning documents. Public hearings and public meetings are conducted with the City’s Housing and Community Development Commission (HCDC) and/or before the City Council to gather input from residents, community stakeholders, and city departments.

SOCIAL SERVICE FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES Each fiscal year, the National City Council allocates 15 percent of the City's annual Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) entitlement to social service agencies. These agencies are selected through a competitive grant process, which is overseen by the Housing and Community Development Committee (HCDC) and by the City Council. Social service agencies funded with CDBG provide a wide range of services for National City residents who have limited incomes.
