Action Plans and Consolidated Plan
The Consolidated Plan assesses the County’s community development needs, proposes strategies to address those needs, and identifies specific activities to implement those strategies. The Action Plans describe the allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Act (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program resources needed to address the priority needs and local objectives established in the Consolidated Plan.
CDBG, HOME, and ESG Programs
The County of San Luis Obispo is an entitlement county participating in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs since 1994. The Urban County is a consortium of cities including Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Morro Bay, Paso Robles, and San Luis Obispo, plus the unincorporated areas of the County of San Luis Obispo, eligible to receive annual, formula based grants of CDBG, HOME and ESG funds directly from HUD.
These grant funds have assisted extremely low, very low, low and moderate income persons/households by providing services, housing and facilities throughout San Luis Obispo County.
HUD released interim regulations on December 5, 2011 for the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program that is replacing the Emergency Shelter Grant program. The link to the interim regulations can be found below under "Guidelines and Regulations."
