Pursuant to 24 CFR 91, jurisdictions that receive CDBG, HOME, ESG, and HOPWA funding must develop and implement Citizen Participation Plans (CPP) that specify how the public can provide input into the planning and implementation process for:
- The Consolidated Plan,
- Annual Action Plans,
- Substantial Plan Amendments to the Consolidated Plan, and
- Performance reports.
The District of Columbia’s CPP was prepared by the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), the District’s grantee agency charged with developing and administering the District’s Consolidated Plan. Jurisdictions participating in HUDs funding programs are required to adhere by HUD’s citizen participation guidelines and follow their respective CPPs after adoption. This plan is currently open for public comment. The document will be available for public commenting between August 12th, 2015 and September 12th, 2015.
