Annually, the City of Fairfield receives funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. This program funds various nonprofit agencies and other City departments to implement services that benefit low- and moderate-income persons, resolve slum and blight concerns, or address community development needs.
Grantees are selected through a competitive process and provide such services as senior daycare services, homeless outreach, housing rehabilitation, and infrastructure development.
The City of Fairfield has been a US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant program entitlement city since 1975. Entitlement funding is determined by a formula based on the size of the city and the total population in poverty. Use the following links to view more detailed information about the CDBG program.

The Consolidated Plan identifies the priority community development needs for the City of Fairfield, including housing, neighborhood development, infrastructure improvements, anti-poverty strategies, and human services. The priority needs are then ranked as high, medium or low priorities.
The 2017-2022 Consolidated Plan, adopted by City Council on August 15, 2017, identifies the strategies for addressing the priority community needs for the five years ending June 2022.
Additionally, HUD approved the City's Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA) Plan, addressing the needs of the community under NRSA goals and guidelines. Review the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative Plan.
The Citizen Participation Plan (CPP) is designed to specifically encourage public participation in the development or amendment process by low- and moderate-income persons, particularly residents of slum and blighted areas or predominately low- and moderate-income neighborhoods, where HUD program funding is proposed to be used. Specific public engagement is required for developing the following activities:
The updated CPP was adopted by City Council on January 21, 2020.
Every year, the City prepares an Annual Action and Funding Plan, which details the projects and programs to be undertaken with the City's federal entitlement funds in achieving the goals identified in the Five-Year Consolidated Plan. The Action Plan also outlines the goals and proposed outcomes for funded projects.
The CAPER is a summary of the progress toward meeting the goals and objectives that were outlined in the Consolidated Plan and its Annual Action for that reporting period.
