This document is required by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The 2012 Proposed Consolidated Plan Annual Performance Report (APR) describes the City's performance concerning the statutory requirements of the Cranston-Gonzalez Housing Act's Comprehensive Housing Affordability Strategy and the City's one-year use of federal funds for the four HUD Office of Community Planning and Development entitlement programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership, Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA). This document reports on the accomplishments and commitment of these funds during the past Consolidated Plan Program Year, January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012.
New York City's Five-Year Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) Statement, a sub-report of the City’s proposed 2012 APR, has a separate public comment period. The Proposed AFFH Statement was released for its 15-day public comment on June 21, 2013.
Federal regulations require the City to submit an APR to HUD no later than 90 days after the end of the program year. Therefore, this document was scheduled to be submitted to HUD on March 31, 2012 as per federal requirements. However, as a result of the impacts of Hurricane Sandy the New York City housing development agencies responsible for the formulation of the Performance Report (Department of Housing Preservation and Development, the New York City Housing Authority, and the Department of City Planning) had to reallocate staff and resources to the formulation of the City’s federally-funded Hurricane Sandy Disaster Recovery (DR) Grant Action Plan.
The reallocation of resources necessitated the City of New York to request from HUD a waiver to the federally mandated APR public review and submission deadlines. HUD subsequently granted the City a 90-day extension to submit its Performance Report. The 2012 Proposed Consolidated Plan Annual Performance Report was submitted to HUD on June 28, 2013 as per the extension deadline.
This version of New York City’s Consolidated Plan Annual Performance Report is part of the City’s activities to fulfill federal Consolidated Plan citizen participation regulations regarding availability of the Performance Report to the public which require localities to provide the public with reasonable access and opportunity to examine the document.
The public comment period was from June 7, 2013 to June 21, 2013. Comments received by the end of the comment period (close of business) regarding the City’s use of these federal funds were to be summarized and Agencies’ responses incorporated into this document for submission to HUD. However, no citizens’ comments were received during the comment period.
