Background Discussion
  • Manatee County Government is an entitlement community for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program funds from HUD.
  • HUD has awarded Manatee County Government funding in the amount of $1,657,872.00 for CDBG, $344,309.00 for HOME, and $112,554.00 for ESG for fiscal year 2013/2014. 
  • HUD guidelines require the adoption of an Annual Action Plan outlining the needs and goals for use of the funds and made available for review to the public for a 30 day period.
  • Staff held five community meetings to receive input from the citizens on unmet needs throughout the County.
  • The draft Annual Action Plan has been available for the required 30 day public review and comment period since June 28, 2013, and was made available on-line and at the Central, South County, Palmetto and Rocky Bluff libraries as well as at the Neighborhood Services Department office.
  • All comments from the Board and the public will be incorporated into the final plan submitted to HUD.
  • Staff has considered the Board priorities, Five Year Consolidated Plan strategies and priorities, citizen comments and applications by non-profit agencies. 
  • Staff used this review method to evaluate all funding requests and presents an Annual Action plan that is consistent with the federal regulations and allowable expenditures of the program.
  • Annual Action Plan items were considered with concern to timeliness expenditure within the fiscal year, little impact to future operating expenses, focus on community improvements, and proper procurement methods in accordance with the HUD regulations and guidelines.
  • Staff is seeking approval and execution of Resolution R-13-106, the Applications for Federal Assistance, and Certifications for the 2013/2014 Annual Action Plan.
