The 2021-2022 Action Plan will be the second-year implementation plan under the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan. It outlines community development and affordable housing strategies and priorities that will be supported with the four federal funding sources listed above and other funding sources administered by MOHCD during the program year that starts on July 1, 2021 and ends on June 30, 2022. The amount of funding the City and County of San Francisco will receive from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for 2021-2022 is as follows: CDBG – $18,887,307; HOME – $5,161,731; and ESG – $1,590,749. The City and County of San Francisco will receive $7,041,373 in HOPWA funding for San Francisco and San Mateo Counties.
CDBG, HOME, ESG and HOPWA funds will be used to support the following five objectives, which are described in San Francisco’s 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan:
- Families and individuals are stably housed;
- Families and individuals are resilient and economically self-sufficient;
- Communities have healthy physical, social, and business infrastructure;
- Communities at risk of displacement are stabilized; and,
- City works to eliminate the causes of racial disparities.
