Every year, the city of Los Angeles receives over $100 million from four federal grants to benefit lower-income residents by improving communities with affordable housing, parks, street lighting, services for the homeless, and many other activities. To receive these grants, the Housing + Community Investment Department (HCID) prepares a Consolidated Plan to outline the City’s goals over a five-year span as well as a yearly Annual Action Plan (both are called the “Con Plan”) that details how the City intends to use the grants for the coming year to help it meet its five-year goals.
Community input is an integral part of forming these plans. While there are federally-imposed limits on what the Con Plan can and cannot fund, all feedback is accepted and useful. Community needs that cannot be addressed by the Con Plan are compiled and sent on to relevant agencies and Council Offices.
This year, please join us at the Los Angeles Trade-Tech Community College (LATTC). We will have a brief presentation about Con Plan and then ask you for your thoughts. Our meeting will be held at Aspen Hall in Room 101, on 23rd Street and Grand Avenue. Free parking will be available at the 24th Street Parking Structure. Light refreshments will be served.
