HOME ARP Notice of Availability for Public Comment and Notice of Public Hearing
HOME Partnership Investments (HOME) American Rescue Plan (ARP) Allocation Plan for Sonoma County
Published: February 10, 2023
A draft of the Sonoma County HOME-ARP Allocation Plan is now available for public review. The draft HOME ARP Allocation Plan is a requirement of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the use of federal HOME-ARP grant funds and provides an assessment of the services, shelter and housing inventory, needs, and gaps of the following population groups: homeless, at-risk of being homeless, persons and/or households experiencing, fleeing, or with a history of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, other vulnerable populations, including veterans, who are household members of the aforementioned groups. The Allocation Plan provides a pathway for Sonoma County to address the needs and gaps of these populations. After HUD reviews and approves the Allocation Plan, these federal funds will be available countywide except for activities/projects located within or primarily benefiting residents of the cities of Santa Rosa and Petaluma.
The Sonoma County Community Development Committee and the Cities and Towns Advisory Committee will hold concurrent public hearings on February 15, 2023 to review and recommend approval of the draft HOME ARP Allocation Plan to the Board of Supervisors, who will consider the plan at a future meeting in March of 2023. Additional information is provided in the public notice below.
