Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) Meeting Notice Schedule

Wednesday, July 30, 2014 7:00 PM

ATTENTION  CITIZENS OF LAKEWOOD, OHIO
NOTICE  OF PUBLIC HEARING
REGARDING  ANTICIPATED FISCAL YEAR 2015 FEDERAL  FUNDS
WEDNESDAY, JULY 30, 2015 AT 7:00 PM
LAKEWOOD  CITY HALL AUDITORIUM, 12650 DETROIT AVENUE, 2ND FLOOR

On Wednesday, July 30, 2015, Lakewood’s Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC), comprised of (17) residents appointed by the Mayor and City Council, will hold its annual Organizational Meeting followed by the first of two Public Hearings held prior to submission of the City’s 2015 – 2019 Five-Year Consolidated Plan and Fiscal Year 2015 (FY15) One-Year Action Plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Each year, the CAC reviews proposals for federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) funding submitted by City departments and not-for-profit agencies then makes recommendations to City Council regarding the allocation of these funds.

In addition to descriptions of Lakewood’s federally-funded community/economic development programs, their goals and objectives, and the citizen participation process instrumental in distributing these funds, the following topics will be covered.

FY15 CDBG FUNDS: The City of Lakewood anticipates receiving approximately $1,700,000 in FY15 CDBG funds from HUD. This is a preliminary estimate; the actual amount is subject to change. Potential uses for CDBG resources, utilized to address a variety of housing, community, and economic development needs, will be discussed.

FY15 ESG FUNDS: The City of Lakewood anticipates receiving approximately $140,000 in FY15 ESG funds from HUD. This is a preliminary estimate; the final amount is subject to change. Potential uses for ESG resources, utilized to serve the literally homeless and prevent homelessness among those at greatest risk of losing their housing, will be discussed.

FY15 HOME  FUNDS:  The City of Lakewood anticipates receiving approximately $200,000 in FY15 HOME funds from HUD through its fiscal agent, the Cuyahoga County Housing Consortium. This is a preliminary estimate; the final amount is subject to change. Potential uses for HOME resources, utilized to increase affordable homeownership opportunities for low-moderate income households, will be discussed.

CDBG MULTI-YEAR  CERTIFICATION PERIOD:  By regulation, Lakewood must expend at least 70% of its CDBG funds on activities directly benefiting low-moderate income households. HUD permits the City to attain this percentage over three-years, also known as a multi-year certification period. A proposal to continue the current FY13 – FY15 certification period will be considered.

FIVE-YEAR CONSOLIDATED PLAN: HUD requires Lakewood to prepare a Consolidated Plan (Con Plan) every five (5) years as a condition of receiving federal CDBG, ESG, and HOME funds. The Con Plan, based on a thorough analysis of market conditions and available resources, identifies and prioritizes housing and non-housing community development needs; describes strategies to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities for low-moderate income people; and establishes multi-year accomplishment goals in these areas. Lakewood’s FY15 – FY19 Con Plan process will be discussed.

The CAC will hear FY15 funding applicant presentations on the following dates.
