The City of Union City receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding on an annual basis from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As part of the requirements to receive this funding, the City must prepare and submit a Consolidated Plan (Con Plan) every five years and an Action Plan every year to HUD. The Con Plan and Action Plan assess the City’s housing, community, and economic development needs, identify available resources, and outline a strategy on how the City plans to address those needs. The Action Plan also identifies specific programs/non-profits that will be funded in the upcoming year.   2017-2018 CDBG Action Plan

Public Services Needs Assessment Study and Funding Strategy

The Union City Public Services Needs Assessment and Funding Strategy is an evaluation of the current public services available to the Union City community and an analysis of the public service needs in the community. The report evaluates the existing service providers to determine how their services meet the needs of the community, the barriers that prevent residents from finding the services they need, and the gaps in services. This assessment report provides conclusions about the current and future needs of the community, recommendations on how to help streamline processes and help service providers maximize efficiency, and a funding strategy designed to help guide the City in the grant funding process.
