Every 5 years, the Village of Arlington Heights adopts a 5-Year Consolidated Plan. Through the Consolidated Plan process, the Village assess its affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions; and develops a strategic plan to meet those needs, particularly with respect to its low- and moderate-income residents. The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans which provide concise summaries of the actions, activities, and the specific federal and non-federal resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified by the Consolidated Plan.

The Village of Arlington Heights is in the process of developing its Federal Fiscal Year 2021 Annual Action Plan. The 2021 Annual Action Plan will be incorporated into the 2020 - 2024 Consolidated Plan. The 2021 Annual Action Plan identifies actions and activities to be taken the 2021 program year (October 1, 2021 – September 30, 2022), including how the Village will use its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.

The Federal resources expected to be received during the 1-year period of the 2021 Annual Action Plan are shown below:

  • Estimated Federal FY 2021 CDBG Entitlement Grant: $280,136
  • Estimated Prior Year's CDBG Carry Over Funds: $111,000
  • Anticipated CDBG Program Income: $50,000
  • Total Estimated CDBG Funds Available: $441,136

The estimates above may be adjusted prior to the public hearing as additional information becomes available concerning current year expenditures and program income.

A Public Hearing will be held concerning the 2021 Annual Action Plan before the Village Board on Monday, June 7, 2021 at 7 PM. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this meeting is being held virtually, which permits the public to fully participate via their computers or using their phones.  Instructions on how to participate in the virtual meeting will be posted on the Village’s website at least 48 hours prior to the meeting.

The funds available for program year 2021 are expected to fund a range of activities including the provision of decent housing and suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income.
