Stanislaus County Planning and Community Development: Stanislaus County annually receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
In 2002, Stanislaus County formed the Stanislaus County Community Development Block Consortium, which includes the Cities of Ceres, Newman, Oakdale, Patterson and Waterford.
HUD requires Stanislaus County to prepare and submit a three to five year Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plans to be considered for funding.
The county also prepares the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). This report describes the actions taken to reach the goals set forth in the Consolidated Plan and Action Plan.
Stanislaus County entered into the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) entitlement community in 2002. Each year the County receives a formula based allocation of HUD program resources. These resources are then allocated by formula to each participating jurisdiction to use within their communities to address identified community development needs. During preparation of the Consolidated Plan, the County and its Grantees identified specific local housing & community development needs as priority for funding consideration. The Annual Action Plan responds to prioritized needs with appropriate project programs.
