Final Draft 2021 Annual Action Plan

The City of Seattle announces the release of the Final Draft 2021 Annual Action Plan (AAP) to the 2018-2022 Consolidated Plan for Housing and Community Development. The Draft 2021 AAP includes guidance for the allocation of an estimated $18.6 million of federal grant and program revenue funds [$9,395,488 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, $3,371,865 million in HOME program funds, $817,674 in Emergency Shelter Grant Program (ESG) funds and $3,150,304 million in Housing Opportunity for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) funds plus approximately $1.9m of program revenue] from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The 2021 Annual Action Plan responds to HUD requirements for the City of Seattle to access these funds. It describes the allocations of these funds to address the housing, homeless, community development and economic development needs of the City’s low and moderate income residents and neighborhoods.
