FY 2020-2021 Annual Action Plan Allocation Adjustment

As an “entitlement” community, the City of North Miami (City) receives annually an allocation of formula block grant funding of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) program funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). For FY 2020-2021, the City was awarded a total of $ 1,067,688 comprised of $769,534 in CDBG and $298,154 in HOME funds. In addition, the City is estimating $25,860 of CDBG and HOME recaptured funds for a grand total of $1,093,548.

On December 17, 2020, the Office of Community Planning and Development of HUD notified the City of an error in HUD’s initial formula allocation for the fiscal year 2020 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) program that resulted in a reduction in the City’s total allocation of $117 and $54 respectively for a revised total of $1,067,517. With the addition of the $25,860 of CDBG and HOME recaptured funds, the new grand total available is $1,093,377. The FY 2020-2021 Annual Action Plan revised table attached to this notice displays the adjusted amounts and the activity impacted by the reduction. Since the reduction is minimal, the City has made the decision to reduce the Administration portion of the distribution; thus, no effect on the City’s already planned activities. 

This notice is informative only since it does not affect the planned activities for FY2020-2021 Annual Action Plan and as such does not require a substantial amendment to the Plan. For questions or if more information is needed, please contact the Housing and Social Services (HSS) Department at 305-893-6511 ext. 20000 or via e-mail housing@northmiamifl.gov or by mail by writing to:
