PROPOSED DRAFT ANNUAL ACTION PLAN
FEDERAL FISCAL YEAR 2017/STATE FISCAL YEAR 2018


The Annual Action Plan is the review of the State’s goals, objectives, and community and housing priorities for the upcoming year. The FFY 2017/SFY2018 Annual Action Plan is the fifth and final year implementation of the current five-year (2013-2017) Consolidated Plan. The Plan indicates how the anticipated funds received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will be implemented for the following programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), and the National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) Programs.


The Plan draft includes goals of the priorities, citizen participation/consultation, housing needs assessment for the homeless, and the investment of resources to meet these needs and any minor amendments. It also provides a strategy for meeting the identified needs, addressing barriers to fair housing and lead-based paint hazards, non-housing community development plans, and anti-poverty strategies. The State of Georgia encourages all of its citizens, public agencies and other interested parties to review the contents of the Annual Action Plan and submit their written comments to the agency.
