Page 1 of 14 pages

PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO HUD 2019-2020 ACTION PLAN PRESENTATION TO COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION DECEMBER 4, 2020 WHAT IS THE CITY OF AUSTIN ACTION PLAN? The Consolidated Plan is designed to help states and local jurisdictions to assess their affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions. The consolidated planning process serves as the framework for a community dialogue to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from the CPD formula block grant programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program, Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program, and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) Program. The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans, which provide a concise summary 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. 2 Why is the City of Austin amending its Fiscal Year 2019-20 Action Plan? • The federal government adopted the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security, or CARES Act, in April of 2020, which provides additional funding to be deployed through HUD programs to respond to the impacts of COVID-19 • Amending the 2019-2020 Action Plan allows for the deployment of additional funds to respond to the impacts of COVID-19 • Jurisdictions must submit amended plans to HUD to then receive the additional funding 3 CORONAVIRUS AID, RELIEF, AND ECONOMIC SECURITY (CARES) ACT OF 2020 The CARES Act provided funding to respond to the impacts of the coronavirus to be deployed by HUD through three programs: 1. Community Development Block Grant coronavirus response (CDBG-CV) 2. Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG-CV) 3. Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA-CV) 4 CARES ACT REGULATIONS FOR EXPEDITED DEPLOYMENT OF FUNDING Citizen Participation and Public Hearings for Consolidated Plans (including Action Plans): The CARES Act clarifies that grantees may amend citizen participation plans to establish expedited procedures to draft, propose, or amend consolidated plans. Expedited procedures must include notice and reasonable opportunity to comment of no less than 5 days. In-person public hearings are not required. Grantees may meet public hearing requirements with virtual public hearings if: 1) national/local health authorities recommend social distancing and limiting public gatherings for public health reasons; and 2) virtual hearings provide reasonable notification and access for citizens in accordance with the grantee’s certifications, timely responses …

Community Development Commission (CDC) Resolution: CDC Recommendations regarding Reimagining Public Safety WHEREAS, in the Spring of 2020 a national movement for social justice in light of the killing of unarmed black men at the hands of police officers including Austin resident Mike Ramos has highlighted historic and institutional racism within the City of Austin; and WHEREAS, the Office of Police Oversight published 227 formal complaints over use of force related to protests of police brutality which resulted in the discipline of 11 officers and further investigations of 7 more; and WHEREAS, multiple lawsuits have been filed on behalf of protesters who sustained injuries from now banned “less-than-lethal” bean bags and foam bullets; and WHEREAS, a new joint report by the Office of Police Oversight, Office of Innovation and the Equity Office found that people of color in Austin are stopped, cited and searched at a disproportionate rate compared to their white counterparts; and WHEREAS, some communities of color and members of the unhoused community have expressed reluctance to call law enforcement or report crimes out of fear of the police; and WHEREAS, police officers are not trained social workers and are often called to the scene of incidents that do not require an armed response but could result in unnecessary escalation without the presence of the appropriate professional social workers; and WHEREAS, many in the Austin community have demanded City Council action in the form of justice and reforms to prevent the over-policing of communities of color, the militarization of the police, the killing of unarmed citizens and that promote social programs focused on equity; and WHEREAS, claims by opponents of public safety reforms that rising crime, a national trend during COVID-19, are a result of cuts to police departments is not backed by research; and WHEREAS, a recent Houston Chronicle report cited a study by a team of criminologists at the University of Cincinnati which found that the “overall effect of police force size on crime is “statistically not significant, and ”policy makers who want police to have an impact on crime would be better suited investing resources in new evidence-based strategies than funding surges in police hiring”; and WHEREAS, the Austin City Council voted unanimously to begin the process of reimaging public safety and reallocate more than $20 million from under the Austin Police Department to address root causes of crime, poverty, and homelessness which has not resulted …
