The FY 2013-14 One-Year Action Plans for Multnomah County, the City of Portland, and the City of Gresham describe and prioritize current housing and community development needs, establish strategies and set one-year goals to address those needs, and itemize how approximately $11-$19 million dollars in CDBG, HOME and other federal resources will be invested during FY 2013-14, the third year of the 2011-2016 Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan describes housing priorities within Multnomah County, and establishes strategies and sets goals for the jurisdictions to meet their housing and community development goals. Before making any changes to the Consolidated Plan through the One-Year Action Plan, the jurisdictions want to give local residents and other stakeholders the opportunity to present comments and views on housing and community development needs. Additional hearings will be scheduled in the spring to review the priorities and draft action plans.
Comments on any of the jurisdiction priorities may be made in writing addressed to the Portland Housing Bureau, Attn: Con Plan Staff, 421 SW 6th Ave, Suite 500, Portland, OR 97204; by email to Kim.McCarty@portlandoregon.gov, or by phone at 503.823.5312 (TDD 503.823.6868). Comments can be submitted online: www.portlandonline.com/phb/conplan. Comments must be received by May 15, 2013.
The Current FY 2012-13 One-Year Action Plan of the Consolidated Plan is available online at www.portlandonline.com/phb/conplan.
