The Draft 2018-2019 Action Plan outlines community development and housing strategies and priorities that will be addressed and includes preliminary funding recommendations for projects that will be supported with the four federal funding sources during the upcoming fiscal year.
The estimated amounts of funding the City and County of San Francisco will receive from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are as follows:
- CDBG - $16,400,000

The City and County of San Francisco will receive an estimated $7,100,000 in HOPWA funding for San Francisco and San Mateo Counties. Please note that at the time of this notice, the 2018-2019 funding amounts for the four federal programs have not yet been issued by HUD.
CDBG, ESG, HOME and HOPWA funds will be used to support the following three objectives, which are described in San Francisco’s 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan:
