Body

Issue/Request:

An Ordinance approving the execution of the funding/approval agreement by and between the City of Lee’s Summit, Missouri and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the 2019-2020 Community Development Block Grant program year.

 

Key Issues:

In August of 1994, the City of Lee's Summit, Missouri (“City”) was designated as an Entitlement Community eligible to receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The City Council has previously approved, passed and adopted via ordinance the City’s 2019-2020 Annual Action Plan. HUD has approved the City’s Action Plan for the 2019-2020 Fiscal Year (a/k/a 2019-2020 Annual Action Plan). HUD has allocated the amount of $373,739.00 to the City to carry out its and its sub-recipients’ CDBG programs for the 2018-2019 program year. The City desires to enter into a Funding Approval/Agreement with HUD in order to receive the allocated CDBG funding.

 

Proposed City Council Motion:

I move for adoption of an Ordinance approving the execution of the funding/approval agreement by and between the City of Lee’s Summit, Missouri and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the 2019-2020 Community Development Block Grant program year.

 

Background:

The City receives CDBG funding from HUD annually to support programs and projects included in the City's Annual Action Plan. The City Council approved the City's 2019-2020 Annual Action Plan in May of this year by ordinance.

 

Impact/Analysis:

No local match is required for the use of HUD CDBG funding.

 

Timeline:

Start: July 1, 2019
