NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of San Clemente City Council will hold a public hearing and public comment period for the Action Plan for Fiscal Year 2022-2023. This action is taken in compliance with federal regulations [24 CFR 91].  

As a recipient of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, the City must prepare a Consolidated Plan every five years. The City is also required to update the related Action Plan annually. The Consolidated Plan is a multi-year strategic plan that identifies housing and community priority needs, strategies to address priority needs, and programs/resources to address these needs. The Action Plan delineates proposed activities to be funded under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) CDBG program. The current 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan was approved by the San Clemente City Council in May 2020. The draft 2022-2023 Annual Action Plan is available for public review.

 

30-Day Public Comment Period

The required 30-day public comment period for the 2022-2023 Annual Action Plan will begin March 31, 2022, and end on May 2, 2022.
