The City of Medford is an entitlement jurisdiction for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.  The Consolidated Plan is a comprehensive planning document for CDBG that identifies the City’s overall needs for housing and community development and outlines a five–year strategy to address those needs adopted by Medford City Council.  The purpose of the Consolidated Plan is to provide the framework for annual decisions on the use of CDBG funds provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Action Plan establishes priorities and outlines annual funding decisions for the upcoming program year.  The City’s 2020/21 annual allocation from HUD is $735,536. Additional expected resources include $172,955.26 in program income received from previous CDBG programs and Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds to be reallocated through the City’s CDBG program. Additional resources may become available during the 30-day public comment period. If the City receives less than the anticipated 2020/21 annual allocation, the variance will be spread across all awarded projects or programs based on a percentage of each award to the total funds available in the associated category. If the City receives greater than the anticipated 2020/21 annual allocation, the additional funds will be allocated to activities that support COVID-19 relief. All funding will be recommended by the Medford Community Development Grants Commission and approved by Medford City Council.
