[ARCHIVED] Cancelation of Public Hearing


2017 Lake County Consortium Housing & Community Development Annual Action Plan


The Lake County Consortium – comprised of the City of Waukegan, the City of North Chicago and Lake County – will be submitting a combined Annual Action Plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The Annual Action Plan will guide the allocation and expenditure of funds available for the 2017 program year (May 1, 2017 – April 30, 2018) through the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG), the HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME), and the Emergency Solutions Grant Program (ESG).

The second Public Hearing on the 2017 Annual Action Plan, previously scheduled to be held during the March 15, 2017 meeting of the Lake County Housing and Community Development Commission, will be postponed due to HUD guidance as follows:


HUD has previously advised that Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) recipients “not submit their consolidated plan/action plan until after HUD’s formula allocations have been announced.” This directive, in the context of the recent federal budget climate (specifically news about potential HUD funding cuts), has made it necessary for staff to consult with HUD on next steps related to the 2017 Action Plan. In accordance with HUD’s response, the second public hearing on the 2017 Action Plan has been postponed until more information becomes available on the expected outcome of HUD’s 2017 funding appropriation. In turn, in the absence of other business, the March 15 meeting of the Lake County Housing & Community Development Commission (HCDC) has been cancelled.
