City of Waterloo - Community Development
FY2021 Consolidated Plan One-Year Action Plan 

A Consolidated Plan One-Year Action Plan will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) by the City of Waterloo, on or about May 9, 2020.  The One-Year Action Plan includes an application for about $1,236,900 in Federal Community Development Block Grant funds.  The Plan also includes an application for about $427,600 in Federal HOME funds.  All dollar amounts are subject to change.  The program year for which the funds are intended begins July 1, 2020.  The funds will be used for a variety of activities including public services, housing rehabilitation, emergency repairs, new construction, and weatherization.  Funding is estimated.  In the event federal funds are less than estimated, each activity will be reduced by the percent of reduction.  In the event federal funds are more than estimated, the overage will be applied to Single Family Rehabilitation for both CDBG and HOME.

None of the activities will cause displacement of persons or businesses from their present location.  In the event such displacement would occur, an Anti-displacement and Relocation Assistance Plan has been developed outlining assistance available.  This plan will also be available for public review in the Community Development Office.

The Community Development Board approved a proposed budget on February 18, 2020 which is posted on our website: City of Waterloo/Community Development/Current News.  A 30-day public comment period will begin March 1, 2020 and end March 31, 2020.  Comments will be incorporated into the final document submitted to HUD.
