The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) started a 30-day public comment period for the Amended 2016 State of Texas Consolidated Plan: One-Year Action Plan on March 7, 2016. Comments will be accepted until 6 p.m., Tuesday, April 5, 2016.

TDHCA, Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), and Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) prepared the plan in accordance with 24 CFR §91.320. TDHCA coordinates the preparation of the State of Texas Consolidated Plan documents. The plan covers the State's administration of the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) by TDA, the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program (HOPWA) by DSHS, and the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program and the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program by TDHCA.

The Plan reflects the intended uses of funds received by the State of Texas from HUD for Program Year 2016. The Program Year begins on Feb. 1, 2016, and ends on Jan. 31, 2017. The plan also illustrates the State's strategies in addressing the priority needs and specific goals and objectives identified in the 2015-2019 State of Texas Consolidated Plan.

Based on updated HUD guidance, TDHCA has amended the plan to include a change in allocation amounts for all programs from estimated to final 2016 allocations; updates the HOME Method of Distribution; updates the definition of Chronically Homeless for ESG; and the addition of contingency provision language to the Citizen Participation Plan for estimated and actual allocation amounts for future years.

Anyone may submit comments on the plan in written form by mail to the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, Housing Resource Center, P.O. Box 13941, Austin, TX 78711-3941 or by fax to 512-475-0070.
