Public Hearing on Proposed Consolidated Plan One-Year Action Plan for FY 2013


The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 at 4 p.m. in the Board Room of the Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax, Virginia, on the Proposed Consolidated Plan One-Year Action Plan for FY 2013.

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 2013 and Five-Year Consolidated Plan. The FY 2013 Action Plan covers the third year of the County's Five-Year Consolidated Plan for Fiscal Years 2011-2015.

The Proposed One-Year Action Plan for FY 2013 identifies the proposed use of funds for the four federal programs with an estimated amount of $6.7 million: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG - $4,414,224), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME - $1,405,283), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG - $469,222), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA - $438,386). The funding levels used for CDBG, HOME, and ESG are based on formal notification from HUD of actual grant levels. Funding for the HOPWA program is estimated at the FY 2011 expenditure level and actual funding will depend on the final allocation made available to Northern Virginia jurisdictions through the Northern Virginia Regional Commission and the District of Columbia, recipient of the funds. It is estimated that there will be approximately $300,000 in CDBG 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 $891,106 and HOME funds totaling $335,796 and reallocating them as follows:

The Proposed One-Year Action Plan for FY 2013 also includes the first year of the two-year funding cycle for the Consolidated Community Funding Pool (CCFP) for FY 2013 - 2014. It identifies funding (an estimated $10.7 million in federal, State, and local funds, which includes $1.6 million in FY 2013 CDBG entitlement funds as well as approximately $200,000 in prior year CDBG funds to be reallocated to the CCFP) 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 2013-2014. However, final awards for FY 2013 are subject to appropriations by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, to be decided through the County budget approval process in April 2012.

In addition, the Proposed Consolidated Plan One-Year Action Plan for FY 2013 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 2013-2014 CCFP funding priorities.

Citizens are also invited to express their views 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 2011.
