The City of Salisbury has prepared a Consolidated Plan which covers a five (5) year period from July 1, 2014 – June 30, 2018. For each CDBG Program Year the City must also prepare an Annual Action Plan to guide its use of affordable housing and community development resources. Both Plans address three basic goals: (1) the provision of decent housing, (2) the creation of a suitable living environment, and (3) the expansion of economic opportunities, primarily to benefit low and moderate income persons. The Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plans also serve as the City of Salisbury’s application for federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program funds. The City is not eligible as a grantee for any other formula entitlement programs administered by HUD.
The Strategic Plan portion of Salisbury’s Consolidated Plan covers a five (5) year period from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2018 (using CDBG Program Year (PY) 2014–2018 funds). This Annual Action Plan covers the upcoming one-year program period beginning July 1, 2017 and ending June 30, 2018 (using CDBG PY 2017 funds).
