The modification to the Prince George’s County Annual Action Plan for Housing and Community Development: Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 is now available for the general public.
The Annual Action Plan (“AAP”) for Housing and Community Development is a comprehensive strategy that describes actions, activities, and programs that will take place during the County’s FY 2017 to address priority needs and specific objectives identified in the County’s FY 2016-2020 Consolidated Plan.
The AAP also serves as an application for Federal funds: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME).
On May 10, 2016, the County Council and County Executive adopted and approved Council Resolution (CR-16-2016): FY 2017 Annual Action Plan for Housing and Community Development. The AAP was based on U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD’s) Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2016 (CFY 2017) formula allocations for grantees and the estimated HOME Voluntary Grant Reduction
On June 8, 2016, due to an administrative adjustment, HUD Headquarters revised the initial FFY 2016 (CFY 2017) HOME allocations that were sent to grantees earlier in the year. The County’s HOME funds were increased by $8,238.00. At that time, HUD also informed DHCD that the County’s initial HOME entitlement funds reflected the Voluntary Grant Reduction Plan ($522,919.00) therefore the AAP must be modified to be consistent with the final HOME Program entitlement allocation ($1,548,138.00) and applicable local jurisdiction amendment requirements.
