DuPage County is beginning preparation of the 2023 Action Plan describing the use of funds for the next program year. The County expects to receive approximately $3.67 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Community Development Block Grant Program, $295,000 for the Emergency Solutions Grant Program, and $1.96 million for the HOME Investment Partnerships Act Program for an approximate total of $5.92 million FY2023. The overall goal of these three programs is to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities principally for low- and moderate- income persons.

A Draft 2023 Action Plan describing the use of these funds in the next program year will be available for review on January 3, 2023. These documents can be viewed on the DuPage County Community Development website: https://www.dupagecounty.gov/community/AnnualPlan/

The link to the 2023 Action Plan has been forwarded to agencies, public libraries, municipalities and townships throughout the DuPage County Consortium area, which includes any municipality wholly or partly in DuPage County. Additional free copies are available to interested organizations or individuals and may be obtained by contacting the DuPage County Community Development Office.
