Every 5 years, the Village adopts a 5-Year Consolidated Plan. Through the Consolidated Plan process, the Village assesses its affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions; and develops a strategic plan to meet those needs, particularly with respect to its low and moderate income residents.

The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans, which provide a concise summary of the actions, activities, and the specific federal and non-federal resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified by the Consolidated Plan. 

The Village intends to make Substantial Amendments to its 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan to update the information in the Plan regarding Anticipated Resources, Goals Summary and other relevant pages to update budget figures to reflect actual funds received over the past 5 years and to make adjustments in the 5-year budget to coincide with the Village’s 2019 Annual Action Plan that is under development.

The Village is also in the process of developing its Federal Fiscal Year 2019 Annual Action Plan. The 2019 Annual Action Plan will be incorporated into the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan. The 2019 Annual Action Plan identifies actions and activities to be taken the 2019 program year (October 1, 2019 – September 30, 2020), including how the Village will use its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.

A PUBLIC HEARING will be held concerning the Substantial Amendments to the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan and the 2019 Annual Action Plan:
Date: Monday, July 15, 2019
Time: 8 p.m. 
Place: Board Room, Arlington Heights Village Hall, 33 S. Arlington Heights Rd., Arlington Heights, IL

The funds available for program year 2019 are expected to fund a range of activities including the provision of decent housing and suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income.

The Village does not anticipate the displacement of any persons as the result of any activities presented in its Federal 2019 Annual Action Plan. If any displacement does occur, the Village will comply with all federal laws and regulations concerning assistance to displaced persons. The Arlington Heights Department of Planning and Community Development will respond to any problems associated with displacement in the Village. The Village anticipates that all of the activities funded will benefit very low, low and moderate income persons as defined by HUD.
