Five-Year Consolidated Plan
The Five-Year Consolidated Plan articulates the City’s vision for enhancing the quality of life in Ontario by addressing housing and community development issues. Mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), this planning document identifies the City of Ontario’s overall housing and community development needs and outlines a strategy to address those needs. The Plan is a combination of the following components: housing and community development needs assessment, survey of available resources, five-year strategy and one-year action plan.
One-Year Action Plan
The One-Year Action Plan identifies specific activities conducted in support of the priorities and objectives originally presented in the Five-Year Consolidated Plan. The One-Year Action Plan is updated annually and presents the specific programs and projects to be implemented each year along with their respective funding sources and allocations.
Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)
The CAPER provides a comprehensive summary of housing and community development activities conducted by the City of Ontario utilizing U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds. This report describes the performance of each program and project identified in the One-Year Action Plan and describes the progress made towards achieving the affordable housing and community development goals as presented in the Five-Year Consolidated Plan.
Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing
Localities such as the City of Ontario are required to certify that they engage in fair housing planning when seeking Federal funds through the Consolidated Plan submission procedure. With the publication of a new FY 2010-2014 Five-Year Consolidated Plan, the City elected to update the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing.
The purpose of the update was to examine the status of fair housing complaints that have been reported by the City’s service provider and review any impediments or pattern that have occurred within the past five years. Through this assessment, it is hoped that current impediments are revealed and effective strategies developed to overcome the impediments that are noted.
