Salt Lake County Division of Housing and Community Development Announces a 2022 Notice of Public Hearings and Needs Assessment

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS and NEEDS ASSESSMENT


Salt Lake County Housing & Community Development (HCD) is hosting three events to learn about the needs of low and moderate-income people in Salt Lake County. This is the first stage of the annual process to develop and implement the Annual Action Plan for Program year 2023-2024. Activities that will be included in the Annual Action Plan will be facilitated by federal grants which are administered by Salt Lake County, including CDBG, ESG and HOME funding through the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, and SSBG funds from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) which are passed through the State of Utah.


Salt Lake County Housing & Community Development is seeking insight as the County reviews the needs, goals, and objectives of the County Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) and the fourth year of the Five-Year Consolidated Plan. The County encourages public participation in one or more of the following opportunities:


1) Provider Convening - Thursday, September 15th, 2022 (8:30am – 10:30am):

Providers are invited to discuss the identification and prioritization of current and emerging needs. As outlined in the Salt Lake County Citizen Participation Plan, Salt Lake County HCD is soliciting participation from public and private agencies that provide assisted housing, health services, and social services, including those focusing on services to children, elderly, persons with disabilities, persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families, and the homeless. Participation is sought from public and private agencies that represent minority groups living in Salt Lake County; and organizations representing non-English speaking residents and limited English proficiency residents in Salt Lake County to promote dialogue on needs and program performance. The County also seeks to consult with community-based and regionally-based organizations that represent protected class members, and organizations that enforce fair housing laws as both the AFH and the consolidated plan are prepared. The meeting will take place in the County Government Center at 2001 South State Street, Salt Lake City, Utah. Contact Maria Sweeten to RSVP at 385-468-4845, or msweeten@slco.org.


2) Community & Support Services Expo - Thursday, September 15th, 2022 (4pm – 6pm):

Providers are invited to set up a table to share information on their services with members of the public, including members of the citizen advisory committees. Members of the public are invited to attend to become informed about available resources, and the impact of programs that may seek federal funding in the future. The exhibition will take place in the County Government Center at 2001 South State Street, Salt Lake City, Utah. Contact Maria Sweeten for more information at 385-468-4845, or msweeten@slco.org.


3) Needs Assessment Survey – Available online Thursday September 15th – Friday September 30th, 2022.

Members of the public are invited to participate in an online survey to express opinions about the most pressing community needs. The survey link will be available at the Provider Expo on Thursday September 15th, and will also be available online on the County Website between September 15th and September 30th, 2022 at www.slco.org/hcd.

Salt Lake County Announces the Public Comment Period for the Updated 2022 Annual Action Plan.

WHAT:

Salt Lake County seeks public comment on the updated 2022 One-Year Action Plan for the following programs: Community Development Block Grant, Emergency Solutions Grant, Social Services Block Grant and HOME Investment Partnership Program.

 

WHEN:

Public Comment Period:  September 10, 2022 – October 9, 2022

 

WHERE:         

Copies of the updated 2022 One-Year Annual Action Plan can be obtained from the Salt Lake County Division of Housing and Community Development, 2001 South State Street, Suite S2100, Salt Lake City, Utah 84114-4575 or by calling Karen Kuipers at (385) 468-4863.  You may also access a copy on our website http://slco.org/housing-community-development/public-notices-and-comments/. Written comments may be submitted via email to HCDPublicComments@slco.org or mailed to Housing and Community Development, PO Box 144575, Salt Lake City, UT  84114-4575.  For further information contact Karen Kuipers (385) 468-4863, or Carlos Martinez (385) 468-4865.

 

 

An updated Action Plan for 2022-2023 will be available for public comment beginning September 10, 2022.  This is a one-year plan that guides expenditures for the following grants:  Community Development Block Grant, Emergency Solutions Grant, and the HOME Investment Partnership Grant.  As stipulated by the Salt Lake County Citizen Participation Plan, certain changes are deemed to be a “Substantial Amendment” to the Annual Action Plan, which necessitate an additional public comment period of 30 days.  The following criteria defines which Amendments are substantial:

  1. Changes in the use of Federal program money from one activity to another;
  2. Changes to the Federal program budget for a project by an amount in excess of twenty percent or $10,000, whichever is greater;
  3. Changes to any of the goals, policies, or procedures identified in the Consolidated Plan;
  4. Changes in the purpose, scope, beneficiaries, or location of the project;
  5. A change in allocation priorities or method of distribution of funds;
  6. A change in the source of funding, from one source to any other source (including program income) covered by the consolidated plan; or
  7. Cancellation of an existing project or addition of a new project.

Therefore, the revisions to the plan that warrant a Substantial Amendment include:

  1. Approximately $80,000 of program income from the Community Development Block Grant program will be utilized in lieu of regular annual CDBG formula grant allocation, to fund contracts which were awarded for the 2022 program year. This change in the source of funding was due to a decrease between the original estimated amount of the allocation to Salt Lake County that was anticipated during the recommendation process, and the final HUD appropriation of CDBG funds.
  2. The original One-Year Action plan which was submitted to HUD included projects identified in the Five-year Consolidated Plan titled “CDBG Public Facilities and Neighborhood Centers (County Owned)” and “CDBG-Private Non-Profit Facility Improvements / Rental Housing”. There are currently no identified resources to carry out these activities in PY22, so the projects will be cancelled from the PY22 Annual Action Plan.

 

Consistent with the goals and objectives of activities assisted under these federal programs, Salt Lake County’s Division of Housing & Community Development will take the following steps to minimize the displacement of people, businesses, nonprofits, and/or farms. 

  1. Discourage projects involving displacement/relocation through a grant application scoring system that reduces the total score of projects that anticipate displacement/relocation;
  2. Encourage project sponsors to plan or stage projects to minimize and/or prevent the adverse impacts of displacement;
  3. Provide for the establishment of temporary relocation facilities in order to provide housing to households whose displacement will be temporary;
  4. Provide advisory services which will include such measures, facilities, and services as may be necessary to determine relocation needs, or other assistance for which displaced persons may be eligible;
  5. Coordinate code enforcement with rehabilitation and housing assistance programs; and
  6. Stage the rehabilitation of apartment units to allow tenants to remain in the building/complex during and after rehabilitation by working with empty units or buildings first.

 

Any residential tenant who will be permanently and involuntarily displaced shall be entitled to the following services and benefits: 

  1. Timely information.  The tenant will be contacted and provided timely information that fully explains the reason for the displacement and the relocation assistance available;
  2. Advisory services.  The tenant will be provided appropriate advisory services necessary to minimize hardships in adjusting to the relocation;
  3. Advance notice.  Unless there is an urgent need for the property (e.g., substantial danger to a person’s health or safety) or the tenant is evicted for cause, the tenant shall be given at least 90 days’ advance notice of the earliest possible date which they must vacate the property;
  4. Replacement Housing Assistance.  Replacement housing assistance is available to both renters and owners in the form of rental assistance or purchase assistance.  The replacement assistance is based on a number of factors as provided in the Uniform Relocation Act and its regulations at 49 CFR Part 24; and
  5. Moving Expenses.  The tenant will be reimbursed for reasonable, documented costs of his/her moving and related expenses; or the tenant may elect to receive a fixed payment for moving and related expenses.
