Each program year, the City of Battle Creek reports to HUD how it plans to spend Federal Community Development funding in its Annual Action Plan. On March 27, 2020 the United States Congress passed The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (H.R. 748). The bill provided $5 billion for CDBG to rapidly respond to COVID-19 and the economic and housing impacts caused by it, including rental assistance and the expansion of community health facilities and shelters.
The 2020-2021 Annual Action Plan is contained in the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan.
