The Consolidated Plan is a five-year plan that provides a unified vision for developing actions designed to address housing and community development needs. Development of the Plan is a collaborative process that creates the opportunity for citizen participation in setting long-term strategies and short-term actions to meet priority needs. An Action Plan: One Year Use of Funds is required by regulation under the CDBG Program. The City of DeKalb will receive an estimated $400,000 in CDBG funds for grant year 2023-2024 (April 1, 2023 through March 31, 2024).
The 2023 Annual Action Plan is subject to consideration and public input by members of the community and DeKalb City Council. All interested citizens are invited to review the plan and submit written comments during the 30-day review period beginning December 23, 2022 until no later than 5:00 p.m. January 23, 2023. Please address all comments to:
