CDBG Reports

Consolidated Plan & Action Plan

The Consolidated Plan is a five-year planning document, which outlines the low-income population’s needs in the City, a strategy for how the City will meet those needs, and a plan of how the City will use available governmental and private resources to implement its low-income housing strategy. The Consolidated Plan is mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a condition for receiving Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds as well as other federal entitlements.

The Action Plan is a component of the Consolidated Plan that details how the City will spend its annual CDBG allocation for the current program year. The 2020-21 Action Plan was approved by the Tustin City Council on April 21, 2020, and submitted to HUD on May 15, 2020. The 2020-21 Program Year for the CDBG program began July 1, 2020.

Copies of the current Consolidated Plan and Action Plan are available for review in the Community Development Department at the City of Tustin City Hall building located at 300 Centennial Way, Tustin, during regular business hours.

The City of Tustin is proposing to amend its 2020-21 Action Plan, reallocating CDBG funds from an activity which is now complete, and no longer being funded by CDBG (Peppertree Park Improvements project), to an existing activity which would allow the City to utilize these funds to prevent, prepare for, or respond to COVID-19 (Emergency Response Funding project). 

The proposed Action Plan amendment recommends the reallocation of its CDBG funds to Emergency Response Funding which may include, but not be limited to the following activities: displacement, relocation, acquisition, and replacement of housing; or, support for infectious disease response.
