CDBG FY 2021-22 Annual Action Plan Substantial Amendment
Due to the increased interest in the Housing Rehabilitation Program, the City will be amending the Fiscal Year 2021-2022 Annual Action Plan in order to add an additional activity to serve the residents of Monterey. The Proposed Program/Activity and Allocation is to provide a Major Home Rehabilitation Loan Program with a budget of $100,000.00. This program provides low-interest loans to eligible low-income homeowners for major rehabilitation or modernization of their home. Major repairs include new foundations, bringing the home up to current Uniform Building Code and repairing or replacing major systems to meet health and safety requirements. All work to be done will also include a lead-based paint inspection
HUD requires that entitlement communities provide the public with a 30-day comment period to provide residents and other interested parties an opportunity to provide input on the proposed Amendment. Public commenting will run from December 15, 2021 to January 14, 2021.
