Each year, Ogden City receives approximately $1.5 million in federal funds under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) programs of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In order to receive these yearly grants, the City must submit to HUD a Five Year Consolidated Plan (ConPlan) along with supporting Annual Action Plans for approval.
The Five Year ConPlan describes the City’s priorities and objectives to provide decent housing, improve living environments, and expand economic opportunities within our local neighborhoods, while the Annual Action Plans list the specific activities and programs to be carried out each year to support the overall vision of the ConPlan.
Public participation is paramount to each of these plans.
The Five Year Consolidated Plan for 2011 to 2015 defines the City’s community and economic development goals, objectives, and strategies for the five-year period July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2015. It also outlines the programs and projects the city expects to accomplish within those five years. Public comments and input for consolidated plan are encouraged and essential to ensure the public’s needs are met.
The City’s Five Year ConPlan 20005-2010 expired June 30, 2010. Its basic goal as described by Mayor Matthew R. Godfrey is, “We believe the continuing growth and redevelopment of our community depends upon the resources, talents, and cooperation of the public and private sectors. Our mission is to work with our community to enhance the quality of life in Ogden by planning Ogden's future while preserving its heritage. We are dedicated to effectively implementing community standards which promote desirable residential and business neighborhoods and safe, habitable buildings."
Annual Action Plans
Each year the City develops an Annual Action Plan which details an overall budget as well as goals and objectives for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) along with specific projects and programs anticipated to be accomplished during the year.
Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)
The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) provides detailed analysis of projects and activities funded throughout the year. The purpose of the CAPER is to compare the actual achievements and outcomes of City programs to the goals that were set forth in the Annual Action Plan. Read the past years' reports below.
The Citizen Participation Plan ensures continuity of citizen involvement in the planning, development, implementation, and assessment of programs funded through the City’s Community and Economic Development Department. The plan describes the process the City uses to collect public input and to involve the public in the process of developing and implementing the Consolidated Plans, Annual Action Plans, and Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports.
Citizen input is highly encouraged, particularly regarding issues relating to Ogden’s low-to-moderate income population because the programs and services initiated by the City’s Community and Economic Development Department benefit Ogden’s low-to-moderate individuals and neighborhoods.
Citizens are welcome and urged to participate in the entire planning process and may get involved through a variety of ways:

- Add your name to the distribution list to be notified of public meetings, add name by emailing Community Development

The Citizen Participation Plan was developed in accordance with Sections 91.100 and 91.105 of HUD’s Consolidated Plan regulations.
