WHAT IS THE ACTION PLAN?
Each year, the City of Los Angeles receives federal grant funds to assist businesses to create jobs; provide job training for adults and youth; improve neighborhoods through projects that eliminate slum and blight; provide affordable housing, domestic violence shelters, and fair housing services. These grant funds are limited and need to be prioritized and targeted in a way that will provide the most benefit to the most people. Once our needs and goals are prioritized, we will submit them to the federal government through the Consolidated Plan. The annual Action Plan, beginning April 1, 2017, will cover the fifth year of the City’s five-year, transit-oriented Housing and Community Development Consolidated Plan.
HOW WILL IT BENEFIT YOU?
Federal grant funds can be seen in action in your neighborhood through federally-funded community centers, after-school programs, training and assistance for small businesses, services for the homeless, affordable housing, domestic violence shelters and many other programs and projects.
WITH SO MUCH NEED IN THE CITY, HOW WILL THESE FUNDS BE PRIORITIZED?
In order to make the most use of the limited funds the City receives, our strategy is to take advantage of the additional funds the City will receive for public transportation. For example, we may want to invest our federal funds on projects that provide affordable housing and job creation near transit corridors, such as the Expo Line, the Gold Line, the Orange Line, the Vermont corridor, and in areas of need in the city. We want to create more livable and healthy communities where services and programs are available and accessible; where people can walk, bike, or take public transportation to work and school.
