The City of Deerfield Beach receives an annual allocation from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under the CDBG program. In FY 2020/2021, the City anticipates receiving an allocation of $690,707. The purpose of these funds is to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment, and better economic opportunities for low-to-moderate-income residents in the City of Deerfield Beach.
In order to receive these funds, HUD requires the City to develop and submit a five-year Consolidated Plan every five years that is implemented and submitted to HUD in annual increments as Annual Action Plans. The Annual Action Plan identifies the proposed projects for federal funding for FY 2020/2021. It shows the linkage between projects and the specific objectives developed to address the priority needs identified in the Consolidated Plan.
A draft copy of FY 2020/2024 Consolidated Plan and the FY 2020/2021 Annual Action Plan is located on the City’s website at http://www.deerfield-beach.com/1769/Approved-Docs.
