The City of Palo Alto is developing its FY 2021-22 Annual Action Plan (APP). The Annual Action Plan identifies the City’s housing and community development needs and provides a one-year action plan to demonstrate how the City will invest its CDBG grants in order to address those needs. The funded activities are intended to meet Palo Alto’s affordable housing and community development objectives described in the 2020-2025 Consolidated Plan.
The development of the AAP is significantly informed by public feedback. A 30-day public review and comment period on the Draft 2021-22 Annual Action Plan for the allocation of FY2021-22 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, began on March 15, 2021 and will end on April 16, 2021.
If you would like to provide comments on the AAP, the City welcomes your attendance at any of the meetings listed in the schedule below. Additionally, comments may be provided by phone, regular mail (to CDBG Staff Specialist, Planning & Development Services, 250 Hamilton Ave, 5th Floor, Palo Alto, California 94301), or email via the contact information listed below for both English speakers and those with limited English proficiency.
