2015-2019 Consolidated Plan: CDBG Substantial Amendment Summary

The State of Tennessee Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program has historically allocated the grant funds to eligible non-entitlement local governments for community development improvements including water and sewer infrastructure, public facilities, owner-occupied housing rehabilitation, and commercial façade improvements. Until the past few years, CDBG funds were also used for economic development loans. Through a process of reconciliation of grants funds an unexpended balance of $22 million has been determined to be available for allocation. $4 million was used to fund additional projects in from the 2016 regular CDBG application round. TNECD is proposing the following uses for the remaining balance of funds.

  • $1,000,000 to be used for rural microenterprise assistance. Microenterprises are considered to be businesses of five (5) or fewer employees including the owner(s).
  • $10,000,000 to be used for workforce development in rural Tennessee. These funds will be used to fund additional TCATs in rural areas that applied for the Drive to 55 Capacity Building Fund grant.
  • $2,000,000 to be allocated as a one-time use of funds to rehabilitate and reroute the Stanton Wastewater Treatment System.
  • $2,500,000 to be allocated as a one-time use of funds for the construction of an EMS facility in the southwest area of Haywood County.
  • $1,000,000 to be used for Project 95. Funds will go toward the construction of a facility to create jobs in Hancock County.
  • $200,000 to be used for the Asset-Based Planning initiative that will assist counties to identify, enhancement, and maximize their assets.
  • $300,000 to be used for a Retail Academy that will assist communities in developing and implementing plans and strategies to recruit and grow retail businesses.
  • $1,000,000 to be allocated for the use of unmet recovery needs in Sevier County and a result of the November, 2016 wildfires.

PUBLIC NOTICE – THDA is charged with developing a National Housing Trust Fund Allocation Plan on August 16, 2016.

PUBLIC NOTICE

The Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) is charged with developing a National Housing Trust Fund Allocation Plan, which will be incorporated into the Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan on August 16, 2016.

The National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) is a new federal formula grant program provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Funds will be distributed to the State of Tennessee to produce, preserve, rehabilitate, and operate housing affordable to extremely low-income households earning less than 30 percent of the area median income. The State of Tennessee will receive $3 million in the first year of the NHTF. 

The public comment period for the NHTF Allocation Plan is from June 6, 2016 to July 6, 2016. THDA requests public input on the following required plan components: priority housing needs, project-based rental assistance, eligibility requirements for sub-grantees, geographic targeting, funds leveraging, and the duration of the affordability period.

THDA is also updating one housing goal in the Consolidated Plan to reflect changes to the Emergency Solutions Grant Program in Tennessee.

THDA is hosting three public meetings across the State of Tennessee during the public comment period to hear comments about the NHTF Allocation Plan:
