HUD Five-Year Consolidated Plan
The City of San Leandro has created a Priority Needs Survey to help assess San Leandro’s housing, public facilities, and social service needs as part of its update to the Five-Year Consolidated Plan. The Plan, required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), uses Census data and public comments to assess and prioritize San Leandro’s housing and community development needs. The final product of this process is a five-year strategic plan that establishes strategies for addressing those needs. The Plan will cover the period from July 2020 through June 2025.
City of San Leandro held two community meetings in January 2020 to determine priority needs in the community in areas such as affordable housing, public facility improvements, and social services, including basic needs programs, homelessness, crisis shelters, and fair housing services. Feedback received will be used to update the Plan. This document and grant application is what the City prepares to obtain annual Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME (HOME Investment Partnership Program) federal funding for local programs and projects that address the needs of city residents, especially low- and moderate-income residents.

Every five years, the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) requires that the City, as an entitlement jurisdiction, prepare a long term, five-year Strategic Plan (also known as the Consolidated Plan) that establishes strategies for addressing the City's priority needs and identifies funding priorities for the City's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership (HOME) programs in the the period July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2020.
The City's Annual Action Plans identifies the activities and their annual funding allocations in accordance with the most current five-year Consolidated Plan described above for the specified fiscal year. The Plans include information on funding resources for housing and community development activities, specifically federal CDBG funds, and a description of proposed CDBG-funded activities.

Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires federally-funded jurisdictions to affirmatively further fair housing. To advance this work, jurisdictions are required to provide and regularly update an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI). Below is the link to the City of San Leandro’s AI that was prepared for the Alameda County HOME Consortium. The Consortium consists of eight CDBG entitlement jurisdictions that includes the City of San Leandro in addition to areas of unincorporated Alameda County.
This Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice examines policies and practices that may limit residents’ ability to choose housing in an environment free from discrimination. The AI assembles fair housing information, identifies any existing barriers that limit housing choice, and proposes actions to overcome those barriers. HUD defines impediments to fair housing choice as:
• Any actions, omissions or decisions taken because of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status or national origin which restrict housing choices or the availability of housing choices; or
• Any actions, omissions or decisions that have the effect of restricting housing choices on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status or national origin.

The City must have a Citizen Participation Plan that governs the process for receiving public input during the Consolidated Plan process annually and every five years. The goal of the Citizen Participation Plan is to encourage all citizens to participate in the planning and implementation of all CDBG and HOME-funded programs and activities.
The Housing Element is a key component of the City's General Plan, required by state law and updated regularly - usually every five years. The Housing Element identifies and analyzes existing housing needs and determines goals, policies, objectives, financial resources and proposed programs and activities to preserve, improve and develop housing.
