In accordance with federal regulations, the County must adopt a Community Participation Plan (CPP) to structure the process of obtaining community input for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), and HOME Investment Partnership Act (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Programs (“three entitlement programs”). The Board of Supervisors adopted the first CPP in 1978 and has amended it from time to time since, most substantially on January 28, 2003, when the Board adopted Resolution #65783 creating the Housing & Community Development Committee (HCDC) and simultaneously dissolving its precursors, the Community Development Committee and the HOME Program Review Committee.
