Substantial Amendment to FY 19/20 Annual Action Plan and Citizen Participation Plan

On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was passed to combat the spread and impacts of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID- 19). Through the CARES Act, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will grant the City of Norwalk with additional $747,572 in CDBG-CV funds. Eligible activities must prevent, prepare for, or respond to COVID-19. Additionally, HUD will be granting waivers and suspensions to certain Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) funds. HUD has also passed guidelines for CDBG-CV funds to maximize the availability of funds for COVID-19. The City of Norwalk is required to amend the 2019-2020 Annual Action Plan and Citizen Participation Plan prior to implementation of waivers and utilization of CDBG-CV funds. The City understands that such waivers do not include affordability, income targeting, environmental, fair housing, and labor standards suspensions. 

 Consolidated Plan Community Meeting Information

As a direct recipient of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership funds, the City is required to prepare a Consolidated Plan detailing community needs, priorities, and the types of activities the City plans to carry-out with the CDBG and HOME funds over the next five years. In order to collect information about community needs, the City conducted a survey and held two community meetings and a Housing Summit. The results of these efforts are available to the public below:
