Community Participation

Every year, the City of Los Angeles receives over $100 million from four federal grants to benefit lower-income residents by improving communities with affordable housing, parks, street lighting, services for the homeless, and many other activities.  To receive these grants, the Community Investment for Families Department (CIFD) prepares a Consolidated Plan to outline the City’s goals over a five-year span as well as an Annual Action Plan (both are called the Con Plan) that details how the City intends to use the grants for the coming year to meet its goals.

Community input is an integral part of forming these plans.  While there are federally-imposed limits on what the Con Plan can and cannot fund, all feedback is accepted and useful.  Community needs that cannot be addressed by the Con Plan are compiled and sent on to relevant agencies and Council Offices.

To view the current action plan, please click here.

You can send your feedback to cifd.planning@lacity.org and it will be included in the report sent to the City Council and with the Con Plan sent to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Virtual Public Meetings

To comply with current public health measures and to ensure the safety of our city, we will hold virtual meetings to gather input for the Mayor’s proposed budget for these four federal grants for housing and community development, probably in March or April 2022.

Please check back later to register for our virtual meetings.  When the dates and times of the meetings are finalized, we will send out an E-mail listing when they will be held.  Please subscribe and check the Consolidated Plan box to keep updated!

Please send all comments and feedback to cifd.planning@lacity.org.

Please check this page again to stay updated on future opportunities to provide input.

Citizen Participation Plan

The Citizen Participation Plan describes how the City complies with federal regulations in providing opportunities for the public to have a say in when, why, how and where the federal funding will support improving the lives of our most disadvantaged residents and the livability of our city as a whole.  While City leadership makes the final decision of how funds will be used, the input of residents, business owners, groups representing low-income persons and other stakeholders is essential to the process.1 probably
