The Erie County Department of Environment and Planning, on behalf of the Erie County Community Development Block Grant and HOME Investment Partnership Consortia, has prepared a draft 2010 Action Plan Component and a Consolidated Plan (CP) for 2010-2014. The document outlines the Consortia's goals and objectives relative to housing, economic development, community development and homeless issues with specific attention given to the needs of low/moderate households residing in the Consortia communities.
The following municipalities comprise the CDBG Consortium: Cities of Lackawanna and Tonawanda; Towns of Alden, Aurora, Boston, Brant, Clarence, Colden, Collins, Concord, Eden, Elma, Evans, Grand Island, Holland, Lancaster, Marilla, Newstead, North Collins, Orchard Park, Sardinia, Wales and West Seneca; Villages of Akron, Alden, Angola, Depew, East Aurora, Farnham, Gowanda, Lancaster, North Collins, Orchard Park and Springville. The HOME Consortium includes the above communities, as well as the Town of Hamburg and the Villages of Blasdell and Hamburg.
The Five-Year CP serves the following functions: a planning document for the jurisdiction developed through a public participation process beginning at the citizen level, an action plan for 2010 that provides a basis for assessing performance against the CP, and a combined application for federal funds under three (3) of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) formula grant programs, including CDBG, HOME and ESG.
The following HUD entitlement grants are anticipated: Erie County CDBG of $3,317,838 plus estimated program income of $860,001; Town of Hamburg CDBG of $450,000 plus estimated program income of $200,000; Erie County/Town of Hamburg HOME Grant of $1,195,159 plus estimated program income of $165,000; and Erie County Emergency Shelter Grant of $129,631.
