The purpose of the CP and the AAP is to ensure that jurisdictions receiving federal assistance, plan for housing and related needs in a way that improves availability and affordability of decent, safe, and sanitary housing and creates economic opportunities for low- to moderate-income families in our community. The CP focuses on three areas of concern: housing, homelessness, and community development. To receive funds made available under certain HUD programs, the County must have a housing strategy and CP that has been approved by HUD.

If a response is received after that, we will try to obtain the auxiliary aid/service or accommodation, but we cannot guarantee that the request will be fulfilled.
