The Consolidated Plan is a planning document required to be submitted by St. Louis County to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in order to receive funding which will be made available through the following three programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG). These grants are administered by the St. Louis County Department of Planning, Office of Community Development, and Department of Human Services. Funds from these grant programs are made available to participating jurisdictions, non-profit and for profit entities and provide funding for programs and activities in St. Louis County.

Citizens attending the referenced public hearings will have the opportunity to discuss the needs of St. Louis County residents as they relate to the requirements of these programs, which must benefit primarily low- and moderate-income residents, eliminate slums and blight, address urgent community needs, provide affordable housing, and provide assistance to homeless residents.

It is also a goal of these grant programs to fund activities which assist in providing decent housing, create suitable living environments and expand economic opportunities. Comments provided by citizens at this public hearing will be synthesized and utilized to develop a draft Consolidated Plan that will list proposed goals and activities designed to meet the needs of St. Louis County residents. The final Consolidated Plan FY 2018 Update—which will be submitted to HUD on or about November 15, 2018—will be a comprehensive and effective citizen-based strategy complete with short-term action plans and proposed activities.

St. Louis County expects to receive approximately eight million dollars ($8,000,000) for the aforementioned programs. Funding should be available on or after January 1, 2018.

Organizations that are interested in requesting CDBG funds from St. Louis County may pick up applications for funding beginning on Monday, August 28, 2017 at the address specified below or at the public hearings listed above. All applications for funding are due at the St. Louis County Office of Community Development on October 27, 2017 no later than 4:00 p.m.
