Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice

Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice

 

The City of Tacoma, as an entitlement jurisdiction receiving Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, is responsible for producing an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice report every 5 years. The following report details the barriers that have been identified, contributing factors, and recommendations for future action. As part of this process, the department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) mandates the jurisdiction report on progress made towards closing out any identified barriers annually, as part of the Consolidated Plan, in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER).

 

Consolidated Plan

Consolidated Plan

Every five years the Housing Division provides services and technical assistance in the planning and development of the City's Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan provides a five-year framework for addressing housing, human services, community, and economic development needs in Tacoma. 

 

2020-2024 Consolidated Plan

The 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan is required by HUD to apply for funds from the CDBG, HOME, and ESG programs. It includes the Annual Action Plan for program year 2020-2021. 

 

A public hearing on the plan was held by the Tacoma City Council on May 19, 2020 and the plan was adopted on May 26, 2020. 

 

Annual Action Plan

The five-year Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans, which provide a summary of the activities that the City of Tacoma will implement each year to address priorities and needs for housing, human services, and community and economic development. Annual Action Plans also contain the spending plan for the City's annual allocation of CDBG, HOME, and ESG funds.

 

2021-2022 Annual Action Plan
The 2021-2022 Annual Action Plan (Plan) is the second year in the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan for the Tacoma-Lakewood HOME Consortium.

During a thirty-day period, beginning on March 30, 2021 and ending on April 29, 2021, the public was invited to review and submit written comment on the Plan. A public hearing was held during a regular City Council meeting on April 20, 2021. To notify the public, the City published a legal ad in The News Tribune. The 2021-2022 Annual Action Plan was approved by City Council on May 11, 2021 under Resolution 40782

Funding Opportunities

Funding Opportunities

As part of this administrative responsibility, we annually solicit applications from service providers and affordable housing developers for use of CDBG and HOME funds. These application processes are a necessary step in the Housing Division's creation of an Annual Action Plan.  Current funding opportunities are posted on the Funding Opportunities and Requests for Proposals page.

Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report

Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report

  

In accordance with the Annual Action Plan, staff monitors and audits the programs and projects receiving funding from three federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs: Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG). The performance of these programs and projects is compiled annually into a document called the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER).  

The City of Tacoma’s CAPER, which describes the accomplishments of the City’s CDBG, HOME Tacoma-Lakewood Consortium, and ESG programs for the Program Year July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021 towards goals outlined in the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan, was submitted to HUD on Monday, September 27, 2021.  

In compliance with the City's Participation Plan, the draft CAPER was made available for examination and review for 15 days, beginning on September 1, 2021 and ending on September 16, 2021.

The City provided public notice on September 1, 2020 in the Legal section of The News Tribune for print and online viewing. A copy of the public notice was shared with partner agencies. Due to the pandemic, draft copies were not available for in-person viewing and instead were posted on the City’s website. No comments were received.
