Federal Programs 
 

Aerial photo of Salem by Ron CooperThe Federal Programs Section provides oversight of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) entitlement funding the City receives on an annual basis.   

HUD provides eligible metropolitan cities and urban counties with these annual grants to be used for homelessness, and to expand economic opportunities, neighborhood revitalization, affordable housing free from discrimination, and/or improve community facilities and services.   

 Award Requirements
The City must prepare two documents: the Housing and Urban Development Consolidated Plan and the Annual Action Plan.  Both documents outline the Plan priorities and how the City intends to allocate the federal allocation.   

The follow-up report for these plans is called the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER), which is also prepared by the City.  This report speaks to the City’s accomplishments, for that reporting year, as it relates to the five year consolidated plan. 211

Social Services
The City provides both CDBG and General Fund awards to local non-profits that provide emergency or essential services to the most vulnerable populations with the highest need.  This assistance comes in a variety of ways, from one-time rental assistance, to help with the cost of prescriptions.  If you, or someone you know, may need assistance, please contact a funded agency located in the Programs tab below or call 2-1-1.        Fair Housing Rights and Laws
