The Portland Consortium, which includes the City of Gresham, City of Portland, and Multnomah County, is beginning its Annual Action Plan process for FY 2023-24 and its 2022-23 Action Plan Amendment process. The 2023-24 Action Plan is the third of five Action Plans in the 2021-25 five-year Consolidated Plan. The process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)’s formula block grant programs, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), HOME Investment Partnerships American Rescue Plan (HOME-ARP), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), to address ascertained community needs.
The purpose of these hearings is to collect community feedback regarding the housing, infrastructure, economic and social service needs of area residents and prioritize those needs during the preparation of the consortium partners’ 2022-23 Action Plans and 2021-22 Action Plan Amendment for HOME-ARP funding. Due to the public health crisis, these hearings will be held remotely via Zoom. For each jurisdiction, call or review website for instructions regarding public testimony, meeting times, website registration and phone information. The two upcoming virtual opportunities to attend a public hearing in your community and give your feedback are:
