NOTICE OF FILING

OF

2019 Annual Action Plan for Housing and Community Development

    Notice is hereby given that the Indiana Office of Community & Rural Affairs (OCRA) and the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) plan to file their 2019 Annual Action Plan for Housing and Community Development (“2019 Action Plan”) with the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) on May 15, 2019, contingent on federal funding allocation decisions. In the event that federal funding is delayed, the plan may be submitted to HUD after this date. The Draft 2019 Action Plan contains a funding contingency plan.

    This document concerns programs that are funded through the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development under Title I of the Housing & Community Development Act of 1974 as amended. Annually, the state receives about $35 million for housing and community development funds. This document governs the allocation of those funds among housing and community development activities (e.g., economic development initiatives, infrastructure improvements, and homeownership and rental programs).

    The 2019 Action Plan provides information on the housing and community development needs priorities and one year spending plan for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, the HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) Program, the National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF), the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program, and the Housing Opportunities for Persons With Aids (HOPWA) Program.

    The Office of Community & Rural Affairs will have the 2019 Action Plan available for public inspection prior to its submission. Members of the public are invited to review the 2019 Action Plan during the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., March 15, 2019 through May 13, 2019, at the Indiana Office of Community & Rural Affairs, One North Capitol, Suite 600, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204. The Action Plan will be available online at: http://www.in.gov/ocra/2369.htm

    Information regarding the 2019 Action Plan can be obtained by writing to: Office of Community and Rural Affairs, c/o 2019 Action Plan, One North Capitol, Suite 600, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204-2027. Additional information may also be obtained via e-mail at eogle1@ocra.IN.gov or on http://www.in.gov/ocra/2369.htm
