2021-25 Consolidated Plan & 2021-22 Annual Action Plan

The City of Portage began the planning process to update its five-year Consolidated Plan for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program.  The City of Portage CDBG Program is funded by an annual entitlement grant awarded to the community by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The Consolidated Plan is designed to help local jurisdictions assess affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions in regards to the use of CDBG entitlement grant funds and other resources available within the community. The consolidated planning process must be completed at least every five years and is implemented through Annual Action Plans. Grantees report on accomplishments and progress toward Consolidated Plan goals in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)

A draft copy of the 2021-25 CDBG Consolidated Plan & 2021-22 Annual Action Plan has been prepared and the public is encouraged to review and comment during the 30-day comment period.  This 30-day comment period began Mach 1, 2021 and will end March 31, 2021.  Following the 30-day public comment period, the City of Portage Human Services Board will conduct a public hearing on the draft 2021-2025 CDBG Consolidated Plan & 2021-22 Annual Action Plan on April 1, 2021 at 6:00 p.m.   In response to COVID-19 restrictions and in accordance with the Open Meetings Act, Human Services Board meetings are currently being conducted remotely.
