The City of Missoula receives grant funds annually from the United States Office of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These funds come through two separate funding streams: the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME). Each year, the City of Missoula awards approximately $500,000 in CDBG funds to housing and community development projects that support low-income residents and approximately $300,000 in HOME funds to housing projects that assist low- to moderate-income Missoulians secure safe and affordable homes.

Grant funding is competitive and is awarded to projects that can address local and federal objectives, which include expanding the supply of housing available to low-income families and individuals, consumer housing programs, and supporting our homeless service providers. This year, the City of Missoula received an additional allocation of CDBG-CV or COVID response funds in the amount of $339,403. Those funds are included in this year's plan, along with some updates to our Citizen Participation Plan to respond to the COVID pandemic.

What are your thoughts or feedback on the City of Missoula's Program Year 2020 Action Plan for HUD-Funded Programs?

Each spring, the Office of Housing & Community Development creates an Annual Action Plan that must be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) before grant funds can be awarded to local organizations. This Action Plan outlines the goals, projects, and intended outcomes for the upcoming program year. You can find this year's Action Plan in the Documents widget at the right - we propose funding 8 projects in Missoula to meet our goals of reducing homelessness, expanding available affordable rental housing, and expanding homeownership opportunities in Missoula. We also include in this year's plan how we will spend CDBG-CV or COVID response funds from HUD.

What comments do you have about the year's goals, projects, or intended outcomes? Do you have any general thoughts about housing priorities in Missoula?

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded. We look forward to future discussions!

Thanks, skaricarey! All documents are linked at the right in the "Documents" tool.

Nothing happens when I open up the Action Plan link, just a blank screen which means I am unable to find out about this year's action plan. Please fix, thank you. I will blame "operator error" in the meantime.
