The purpose of the CP and the AAP is to ensure that jurisdictions receiving federal assistance plan for housing and community development related needs in a way that improves availability and affordability of decent, safe, and sanitary housing and creates economic opportunities for low- to moderate-income families in our community. The CP focuses on three areas of concern: housing, homelessness, and community development.  To receive funds made available under certain HUD programs, the County and State must have a housing strategy and CP that has been approved by HUD.

 

Documents, materials and information on how to apply for CDBG funding will be available at the meeting and posted on the Housing Agency’s website at: https://www.kauai.gov/Government/Departments-Agencies/Housing-Agency/Housing-Community-Development/Community-Development-Block-Grant-Program-CDBG
