Proposed Five-Year Consolidated Plan for FY 2010-2015 and Proposed Consolidated Plan One-Year Action Plan for FY 2011


March 26, 2010

TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS, AND PERSONS:

On Tuesday, April 27, 2010, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will consider a Proposed Five-Year Consolidated Plan for FY 2011 - 2015 and a Proposed Consolidated Plan One-Year Action Plan for FY 2011.

The Proposed Five-Year Consolidated Plan for FY 2011 - 2015 is required for funding four federal programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA).  The Five-Year Plan identifies a wide range of needs, current programs and strategies, and gaps and priorities for housing, community service, homeless, community development, neighborhood preservation and revitalization, employment and economic opportunity programs and services in the county.  The Five-Year Plan also includes broad goals and objectives to address priority needs with the use of resources available through the Consolidated Plan.

The Consolidated Community Funding Advisory Committee (CCFAC) is the citizen advisory group that oversees the preparation of the Proposed One-Year Action Plan for FY 2011 and Five-Year Consolidated Plan.  The FY 2011 Action Plan covers the first year of the County’s Five-Year Consolidated Plan for Fiscal Years 2011-2015.

The Proposed One-Year Action Plan for FY 2011 identifies the proposed use of funds for the four federal programs with an estimated amount of $9.1 million:  Community Development Block Grant (CDBG - $5,982,304), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME - $2,707,657), Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG - $263,978), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA - $180,000).  The funding levels used reflect the funding levels of FY 2010 until HUD notification of FY 2011 grant awards.  It is estimated that there will be approximately $330,000 in CDBG program income and $46,000 in HOME program income.

The Proposed Action Plan also proposes a reallocation of CDBG funds carried over from prior years.  The Proposed Action Plan proposes using CDBG funds totaling $270,000 from the Neighborhood Revitalization - Neighborhood Outreach completed activity and reallocating them to the following activities: Senior/Disabled/HomelessHousing ($200,000) and Affordable Housing Preservation/Workforce Housing ($70,000).

The Proposed One-Year Action Plan for FY 2011 also includes the first year of the two-year funding cycle for the Consolidated Community Funding Pool (CCFP) for FY 2011-2012.  It identifies funding (an estimated $11.0 million in federal, State, and local funds, which includes $2.0 million of CDBG funds) to be made available to nonprofit organizations for community-based programs that are recommended for awards.  The awards are based on the recommendations from the Selection Advisory Committee appointed to review the proposals received through the competitive CCFP solicitation process for FY 2011-2012.  However, final awards for FY 2011 are subject to appropriations by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, to be decided through the county budget approval process in April 2010.

In addition, the Proposed Consolidated Plan One-Year Action Plan for FY 2011 identifies: (1) various public and private resources available for housing and community development activities; (2) the goals and objectives for the Five-Year Consolidated Plan; and (3) the FY 2011-2012 CCFP funding priorities. 

Citizens are invited to express their views on these documents and on housing, community development, fair housing, homelessness and community service needs in Fairfax County, as well as comment on Fairfax County’s community development performance.  The public is encouraged to provide information concerning changes in housing and community service trends since the last Board public hearing on the Consolidated Plan in March 2009.
