This notice is to announce the beginning of a minimum thirty-day (30) public comment and review period of Dakota County Community Development Agency’s (CDA) draft of the Dakota County Consortium’s 2019 Annual Action Plan.
This notice is to announce the beginning of a minimum thirty-day (30) public comment and review period of Dakota County Community Development Agency’s (CDA) draft of the Dakota County Consortium’s 2019 Annual Action Plan. The purpose of the public comment period is to receive comments from the general public concerning the proposed housing and community development needs and objectives of Dakota County, and the projected use of Fiscal Year 2019 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) funds, Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds, and Program Income derived from CDBG and HOME. At the time of publication, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) had not released the Fiscal Year 2019 allocations for the three programs. The proposed budgets for the uses listed in this notice are an estimate based on the allocation received by Dakota County in Fiscal Year 2018. The 2019 Action Plan will be adjusted when HUD releases the final grant amount for Fiscal Year 2019. A public hearing for the Fiscal Year 2019 Action Plan is proposed to be scheduled for April 23, 2019.
Following is a summary of the proposed uses for the 2019 CDBG Program (estimate $1,941,521) and Program Income.
The CDBG funding will be allocated proportionally for most subrecipients depending on any increase or decrease in program funding. However, the cities of Apple Valley, Eagan, Farmington, Rosemount will adjust the amounts dedicated of the Home Improvement Loan activities by the amount needed to meet the final funding allocation.
The following is a summary of the proposed uses for the 2019 ESG (estimate $160,273):
Any increase or decrease in the ESG allocation will be applied to the Rapid Re-housing component.
The following is a summary of the proposed uses for the 2019 HOME Entitlement (estimated $2,512,927) and Program Income ($332,639). The percentage shares are subject to change.
