As a recipient of Federal entitlement grant funds, the City of Kissimmee is required to submit a Consolidated Plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) every five years. The Five-Year Consolidated Plan planning process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing, economic, and community development priorities. The Consolidated Plan is implemented through Annual Action Plans, which provide a concise summary of the actions, activities, and Federal resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and goals identified in the Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan are submitted to HUD for review and approval.
The City of Kissimmee receives one entitlement grant from HUD: the Community Development Block Grant. Also, as a participant in the Osceola County Consortium, the City receives funding from the HOME Investment Partnerships program. The purpose of each grant program is outlined below:
- Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds are used to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and opportunities to expand economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons.
- HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funds are used for a wide range of activities, including acquiring, developing, and rehabilitating affordable housing for rent and homeownership and providing direct rental assistance to low- income families.
