County of San Mateo, Cities of Daly City, South San Francisco, San Mateo, and Redwood City In order to receive annual entitlement funds under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and/or the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Programs, from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), local jurisdictions are required to certify that they are affirmatively furthering fair housing. This certification involves three elements:
Completion of an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI);
Development of a Fair Housing Action Plan – including actions to overcome the effects of any impediments identified; and
Maintaining records reflecting the actions taken in response to the analysis.
The County of San Mateo, along with the Cities of Daly City, South San Francisco, San Mateo, and Redwood City, each receive our own annual allocations of CDBG, HOME, and/or ESG funds from HUD. As the five entitlement jurisdictions in the County, we have cooperated to prepare an updated joint AI.
