City of Tucson-Pima County Consortium Citizen Participation Plan Public Comment Draft Posted





The City of Tucson and Pima County Consortium will accept comments on the draft November 2021 HUD Citizen Participation Plan (CPP) from November 29, 2021 to December 27, 2021. The CPP describes how the consortium members provide opportunities for and encourage citizens to participate in an advisory role in the development of and revision or substantial amendment to documents required by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of Community Planning and Development.

The November 2021 draft CPP updates the April 2020 CPP to allow for an abbreviated public comment period for HOME-ARP funding, revises substantial amendment criteria, and updates the consortium’s anti-displacement plan. The revised CPP may be concurrently adopted with the HOME-ARP allocation plan or Annual Action Plan, for which separate public notice will be provided.

Human Services Plan

Human Service programs are essential to the growth and vitality of our community.  The City of Tucson strongly believes that investing in the prevention as well as the remediation of personal struggles, community members will have an opportunity to achieve well-being and lead productive and self-sufficient lives.  The City allocates federal funds (CDBG, ESG) and general funds to nonprofit agencies through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process that supports nonprofit agencies that deliver a broad range of services including case management, financial assistance, food assistance, transportation help, pro-social activities, shelter, skill development/training, mentoring, respite, and tutoring.

The following Plan was approved by Mayor and Council at the April 5, 2016 Regular Session with the requirement that we retain the current funding for the first year of the Plan, and implement the new funding for the remainder of the Plan.  This included postponing implementation of this plan until FY 2018.
