Public Hearing to receive citizen comments on the amendment to the Citizen Participation Plan required by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and adoption of Resolution R-16-172 to approve the amended Citizen Participation Plan.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
24 CFR Part 91.105

Background Discussion
  • Manatee County is an entitlement recipient of Community Development Block Grant funds (CDBG) under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (as amended).
  • The purpose of the Citizen Participation Plan (CPP) is to outline the procedures for citizen’s participation in the development and implementation of Manatee County’s Five-Year Consolidated Plans, Annual Plans, Consolidated Annual Performance Reports (CAPER), Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH), and substantial amendments to five-year or annual plans.
  • A key element of the Consolidated Planning process is citizen participation. The CPP is designed to encourage the participation of low- and moderate-income households, particularly those living in slum and/or blighted areas and in areas where CDBG funds are proposed to be used.
  • The CPP encourages the participation of all citizens, including minorities and non-English speaking persons, as well as persons with mobility, visual, and/or hearing impediments. The CPP also encourages the participation of public and assisted housing residents in the development and implementation of the Consolidated Plan.
  • The amendment to the CPP is required to address the citizen participation process for the AFH.
