|City of Huntsville's Community Development Department Issues Request for Professional Services in Preparation for the 2015-2020 Consolidated Plan/Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice
July 8, 2014
The City of Huntsville, Alabama is an entitlement community eligible to receive assistance under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program. Funds for these programs must be spent inside the City limits of Huntsville, Alabama for program participants who meet applicable eligibility criteria and for eligible activities as outlined by program regulations.
The Consolidated Plan is a document that is submitted to HUD every five years that serves as the planning document for the City and as an application for funding under the referenced programs which is prepared in accordance with the requirements of 24 CFRPart 91. Additionally, as a part of the Consolidated Plan, the City certifies annually that it will affirmatively further fair housing, which means it will conduct an Analysis of Impediments (AI) to Fair Housing Choice within the jurisdiction, take appropriate actions to overcome the effects of any impediments identified through that analysis, and maintain records reflecting that analysis and actions in this regard.
The City is seeking consultant service proposals to coordinate the preparation of both documents on behalf of the Community Development Department in accordance with HUD regulations and guidelines. The documents must cover the period of July 1, 2015 through June 30,2020 and must be submitted in Draft Form to the Community Development Department no later than March 1, 2015 for Public Comment and in Final Form no later than May 1, 2015 for submission to the Huntsville City Council and HUD.
