Each year, the City of Los Angeles receives federal grant funds to assist businesses to create jobs; provide job training for adults and youth; improve neighborhoods through projects that eliminate slum and blight; provide affordable housing, domestic violence shelters, and fair housing services.  These grant funds are limited and need to be prioritized and targeted in a way that will provide the most benefit to the most people.  We will be preparing the plan to submit to the federal government through the Consolidated Action Plan and want to get public input on the plan for the Councilmembers to consider as they review and revise the plan.  

The City is beginning the process of planning for next year's annual Action Plan, which begins on April 1, 2017, and covers the fifth and final year of the City’s five-year, transit-oriented Housing and Community Development Consolidated Plan.  The City held public hearings to gather comments and opinions on how the City should use the federal funds within the community and has summarized the meetings.  

Additional public hearings will be scheduled during January and February to share the City's draft budget for the year and gather comments about the draft.
