AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN (HOME-ARP)
NOTICE is given that Collier County was awarded $2,729,078 in HOME-American Rescue Plan (“HOME-ARP”) funds in a one-time allocation from the U.S. Department of Urban Housing and Development (“HUD”). Federal HOME-ARP funding was created to assist individuals or households who are experiencing homelessness, at risk of homelessness, and other vulnerable populations, by providing affordable housing, rental assistance, supportive services, and non-congregate shelter, to reduce homelessness and increase housing stability. The HOME-ARP Allocation plan (“the plan”) defines the use of the HOME-ARP grant funds to address these needs within the HUD-approved eligible activities. The County will make funds available for activities once the HOME-ARP Allocation Plan’s associated consultation, public participation process, and HUD approval have been completed through the substantial amendment of the PY 2021 Annual Action Plan.
A draft of Collier County’s HOME-ARP Allocation Plan will be available for a 15-day public comment period. Notice is also given that a public hearing will be held to allow the public to review and make comments.
