The County of Santa Clara, Office of Supportive Housing, HCD Division is proposing a third substantial amendment to the adopted Fiscal Year 2022 (FY21/22) Annual Action Plan which covers the period of July 1, 2021, through June 30, 2022. The FY21/22 Annual Action Plan was the second of five, one-year increments to the 2020-2025 Five-Year Consolidated Plan which was adopted by the Board of Supervisors on May 4, 2021.

An Annual Action Plan establishes goals and strategies for the use of housing resources including federal, state, local and private resources for the provision of housing assistance to extremely low, low and very low-income persons including the homeless as well as establishing other community development needs such as Capital Projects, Public Services, and Fair Housing services.

In order to make adjustments to the adopted action plan and projects, the County must submit a substantial amendment plan to its adopted FY2022 Annual Action Plan. The purpose of this substantial amendment is to program the $3,599,966 in HOME- American Rescue Plan funds awarded to the County. The HOME American Rescue Plan (HOME ARP) Program was created under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 to provide housing, services and shelter to individuals experiencing homelessness as well as other vulnerable populations. 

This serves to inform the public of an opportunity for public comment.  A copy of the Draft Amendment and HOME ARP Allocation Plan is published on the County’s Office of Supportive Housing website.
