Public Notice: Substantial Amendment To The 2020 Five-Year Consolidated Plan and 2021 Annual Action Plan

Wednesday, September 07, 2022

The City of Toledo (COT) intends to make application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the use of federal funds to create two Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Areas (NRSAs) located in the Old South End and Englewood neighborhoods.

The reason for the NRSAs is to focus the COT’s federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds and leverage them for greater impact in targeted areas. Goals of the NRSAs include increasing the supply of affordable housing and improving the housing stock, creating/retaining jobs and assisting small businesses and microenterprises, and improving infrastructure in the commercial corridor. It is anticipated that the proposed two NRSAs will attract private and public sector investments which will assist in improving the housing, economic development, and living environments in the two areas.

The NRSA plan will be implemented by the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) who will manage an implementation working group in each NRSA and institute a monitoring and reporting system for agencies carrying out NRSA activities. The working groups will consist of residents, community leaders, nonprofits, funders, major institutions, and other stakeholders.

The Substantial Amendment to the 2020 Five-Year Consolidated Plan, 2021 Annual Action Plan, and City of Toledo NRSA application will be available for review beginning Wednesday, September 28, 2022, on the website of the following entities:
