Proposed Amendments to the Approved FY 17-18 Annual Action Plan

The City of Virginia Beach Department of Housing & Neighborhood Preservation intends to make amendments to its FY 17 18 Annual Action Plan Projects/Programs, which has already been approved by HUD. This Amendment is prepared in accordance with requirements set forth for "substantial changes" as defined by HUD and as set out in our approved Citizen Participation Plan. All changes can be found in AP-35 "Projects" (pages 37-38) and AP-38 "Projects Summary" (pages 39-55). In summary, we have closed out projects that did not come to fruition, moved located funds from certain projects to others, and have created some additional programs within the constructs of previously approved programs that now have additional funds allocated to them.  All project/program changes are highlighted. The amended plan will be submitted to HUD on March 28, 2018 for approval after any and all comments, adjustments or changes have been considered, including any additional reallocation of funds from this year for approved projects. Citizen comments will also be included as part of the plan.
