Action Plan & Report

Five-Year Consolidated Plan
For Butler County to receive CDBG entitlement funds, the County must prepare a five-year strategic plan that identifies housing and community needs, prioritizes these needs, identifies resources to address needs, and establishes annual goals and objectives to meet the identified needs. This plan is known as the Five-Year Consolidated Plan and outlines a strategy for the County to follow for the use of CDBG funding to achieve the goals of the CDBG program.

Annual Action Plan Process
The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans, which provide a concise summary of the actions, activities, and the specific federal and non-federal resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified by the Consolidated Plan.
Project selections will be submitted to HUD in the form of the Annual Action Plan.
Once projects are selected the Annual Action Plan will be developed and is subject to a 30-day comment period.
The Annual Action plan must be formally adopted by the Board of County Commissioners.
The plan must be submitted to HUD 45 days prior to the grant start date pending the final allocation from HUD. 

Annual Action Plan
The Five-Year Consolidated Plan includes an Annual Action Plan for the first year of the consolidated plan. After the first program year, the consolidated plan is amended with an Annual Action Plan for each subsequent program year. The Annual Action Plan describes the funding levels and activities to be undertaken during the individual upcoming program year for the CDBG program to address the priority needs and objectives outlined in the Five-Year Consolidated Plan.

Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice
The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice is a study that recipients of HUD grant funds must undertake every five years as part of their obligation to affirmatively further fair housing under the Fair Housing Act, known as Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968. The Fair Housing Act guarantees protection from discrimination when renting or buying a home, getting a mortgage, seeking housing assistance, or engaging in other housing-related activities and prohibits discrimination in any real estate transaction based on disability, race, sex, color, national origin, religion, and family status.
