Each year, the City of Roanoke receives about $2 million in new federal funds under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) and Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) programs of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
In order to receive these yearly grants, the City must submit a 5-year Consolidated Plan and Annual Updates to HUD for approval. Attributes
The Consolidated Plan describes the City and its priorities and objectives for the anticipated funds for the five years. Each Annual Update thereafter provides the activities to be funded for the given year and the amount of funding apportioned to each activity.
