Community Development Resources:

Suffolk County receives federal entitlement funds under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program and the Emergency Shelter Grant Program (ESG). In connection with the receipt of those funds, Suffolk County is required to submit a 5 Year Consolidated Plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. A key component of the 5 Year Consolidated Plan is public comment and input.

The Consolidated Plan for Suffolk County, New York, represents a new 5 year plan covering the program years from 2015 to 2019, consolidating the CDBG, HOME and ESG entitlement funding into one submission. It has been prepared in accordance with 24CFR Part 91.

As a requirement of receiving Federal funds, Suffolk County has recently completed the final draft of its Analysis to Impediment to Fair Housing Choice (AI). The goal of this analysis is to identify a process to affirmatively further fair housing through an examination of the fair housing delivery system, housing transactions and housing patterns.
