Fiscal Impact
The Village of Oak Park is an entitlement community receiving an annual grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) annually. There is no fiscal impact on the General Revenue Funds.

Background
Each year, the Village must prepare an Annual Action Plan ("Action Plan") in order to receive Community Development Block Grant ("CDBG") funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development ("HUD"). The purpose of the CDBG Program is to meet the needs of primarily low- and moderate-income persons. The Action Plan describes the funding allocations the Village is making for Program Year 2022 ("PY 2022"), which starts on October 1, 2022, in order to serve these populations.

The Village will receive $1,553,643 in CDBG funding for PY 2022, which is a 6% decrease from the $1,653,543 that we received in PY2021. For historical reference, the Village received $1,666,079 in PY2020. As was the case in PY 2020 and 2021, the Village is not receiving any CDBG Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) monies in PY 2022.
