DuPage County received approximately $3.8 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG), $300,000 for the Emergency Solutions Grant Program (ESG), and $1.7 million for the HOME Investment Partnerships Act Program (HOME) for FY2018 and received similar amounts for FY2019. The overall goal of these three programs is to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities principally for low- and moderate-income persons. It is estimated that at least 95% of the DuPage County funds received from these three programs, and covered by the Consolidated Plan, will benefit persons of low and moderate income.
DuPage County is proposing a substantial amendment to its 2018 Action Plan to reprogram HOME funds to use for a Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) COVID-19 Response program. DuPage County is also proposing substantial amendment to its 2019 Action Plan to reprogram HOME funds to use for a TBRA COVID-19 Response program. These draft documents can be viewed starting June 3, 2020 on the DuPage County Community Development website: https://www.dupageco.org/Community_Services/Community_Development_Commission/31052/
Further, DuPage County is proposing amendments to the Citizen Participation Plan (CPP). The CPP plan has been developed for the DuPage County Consolidated Plan for Housing and Community Development. It is a compilation of the existing policies of the DuPage Community Development Commission (CDC) designed to afford citizens, public agencies, and interested parties reasonable opportunity to review and comment on policies and activities of the CDC and the projects and programs funded by the grant programs it oversees. The draft document can be viewed starting June 8, 2020 on the DuPage County Community Development website: https://www.dupageco.org/Community_Services/Community_Development_Commission/1392/
