Housing and Urban Development Plans and Reports
The Community Development Block Grant ("CDBG") Program has operated since 1974 to provide local governments with the resources necessary to meet the needs of low and moderate-income residents. Annually, the Department of Housing and Urban Development ("HUD") issues entitlements to local governments, including the City of Baytown, and allows those units of government flexibility to develop programs that meet the unique needs of their community. HUD requires entitlement jurisdictions to adopt a series of plans and reports. These various reports are necessary in order for the needs of the citizens of Baytown to be determined; priorities that address those needs be set; and input of the citizens to be incorporated in the development of each annual application to HUD.
To receive certain CDBG funds, all jurisdictions must have an approved Consolidated Plan. The City of Baytown completed the Consolidated Plan in August 2015 that covers fiscal years 2015-2019.
- This Plan is mandated by HUD to determine how the City will use Community Development Block Grant funds for the next five (5) years.
- The Consolidated Plan addresses housing, social services, infrastructure, and community revitalization needs in Baytown.
- It also develops the goals and objectives that the City will fund and/or support in relationship to low to moderate-income persons and areas.
The 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan was submitted to Housing and Urban Development and is available for review at this time.
The 2015-2019 Citizen Participation Plan was submitted to Housing and Urban Development and is available for review at this time.
Annually, the City develops an Action Plan based on the strategies and goals of the Consolidated Plan. The Action Plan describes the activities that will be undertaken and the funding amounts for each activity.
Typical activities in Baytown include:
- Housing rehabilitation
- Homebuyers’ assistance
- Code enforcement; and
- Services for seniors, youth and victims of domestic violence.
The 2019-2020 Action Plan began on October 1, 2019 and goes through September 30, 2020. The Action Plan was submitted to Housing and Urban Development and is available for review at this time.
The Comprehensive Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) – Program Year 2018-2019 is a comprehensive report that details how the CDBG funds were used for the previous fiscal year ending September 30, 2019. This document was submitted to HUD in December, 2019.
