COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires the City of South San Francisco to prepare a Five Year Consolidated Plan (Con Plan) and subsequent One-Year Action Plans (Action Plans) in order to receive federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. The City’s current Con Plan covers fiscal years 2013-2014 to 2017-2018 and the City’s 2015-2016 Action Plan is incorporated into the Con Plan. HUD Programs have three basic goals to assist extremely low, very-low, and low income persons by:
- Providing decent and affordable housing;
- Providing a suitable living environment; and
- Expanding economic opportunities
The City's Con Plan furthers these goals by assessing the housing and community development needs and resources of the City and outlines a strategy on how it plans to address those needs.
