This notice provides the public the opportunity to examine and comment on the proposed 2021 Action Plan for the City of Sioux Falls for a period of 30 days. The Action Plan lists the proposed activities identified to receive funding from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and the Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) program in 2021. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires the jurisdiction to have an action plan before applications can be submitted for future program funding.
The plan will identify the sources and uses of funds from the CDBG program and the HOME program. The City estimates that in 2021 it will receive approximately $1,025,000 of CDBG funds and $506,000 of HOME funds from HUD. The City also expects to receive approximately $485,631 from CDBG program income and $159,521 from HOME program income. These funds will be used to address the needs of the low-income members of our community.
The above grant amounts are estimates. Any increase or decrease in federal grant award relative to the City’s estimate of the 2021 grant award will be applied to the Single-Family Housing Rehabilitation Loan program (CDBG), the Neighborhood Revitalization program (HOME), and administration allowed for both CDBG and HOME.
The City anticipates that these projects will not cause displacement of existing households.
Low- and moderate-income persons, racial and ethnic minorities, persons of limited English proficiency, persons with disabilities, and female-headed households are especially encouraged to review and comment on the Action Plan.
The plan is available for review at the following locations: Housing Division, City Center, 231 N. Dakota Ave.; Downtown Library, 200 N. Dakota Ave.; Caille Branch Library, 4100 S. Carnegie Cir.; Oak View Branch Library, 3700 E. 3rd St.; Prairie West Branch Library, 7630 W. 26th St.; and Ronning Branch Library, 3100 E. 49th St. The plan is also available online at www.siouxfalls.org/planning-dev/planning/affordable-housing.
