The North Dakota Department of Commerce, Division of Community Services, is announcing the availability of the state’s draft 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan, the state’s revised draft 2020 Action Plan, and the state’s draft Analysis of Impediments of Fair Housing for public comment.
The Consolidated Plan provides information about the housing and non-housing community development needs in the state and includes a five-year strategy to address those needs, emphasizing benefit to low and moderate income persons and households.
The revised 2020 Action Plan serves as the state’s grant application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the state’s Community Development Block Grant, HOME, Emergency Solutions Grants and Housing Trust Fund programs. The revised Action Plan primarily describes how the funds from each program will be distributed during the 2020 program year, which is expected to begin on or about July 1, 2020.
The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing is a study that is intended to evaluate the spirit of affirmatively furthering fair housing in the state of North Dakota and a tool for enhancing public policy so that fair housing choice can be more broadly exercised.
The draft 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan, revised draft 2020 Action Plan and draft Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing will be available on the Division of Community Service website, www.ndcommunityservices.com, beginning June 1, 2020.
Written comments must be received by the close of business June 6, 2020.
