All projects propose benefit to lower income households in Spokane County, particularly the residents of the twelve participating municipalities and unincorporated areas.

None of the recommended CDBG projects involve displacement and/or relocation of individuals or the demolition of affordable housing units. Any residential rehabilitation work involving temporary relocation of residents will be performed in accordance with the Spokane County Community Services, Housing, and Community Development Department Relocation Assistance Policy.

​ No lower income household or business is proposed to be displaced through activities funded with federal CDBG dollars. If displacement should occur, assistance will be made available in accordance with the county’s Displacement Plan. This plan is available for public examination in the Community Services, Housing, and Community Development Department, Fourth Floor, 312 West 8th Avenue, Spokane, WA 99204.

​Spokane County actively supports fair housing efforts in the community in a positive, solution-oriented fashion. Housing programs funded by the Community Development Block Grant, Home Investment Partnership Program, and Homeless Programs, are administered to affirmatively further fair housing.

​ Spokane County assures that grants will be conducted and administered in compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000d), the Fair Housing Act (42 U.S.C. 3601 3620), the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, Executive Orders 11063, 11625, 12138, 12432 and 12892, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 794), the Americans with Disabilities Act (Title II), and implementing regulations.

​The funding for these preliminary recommendations has not yet been allocated by the federal government. Acceptance of the 2017 Spokane County Housing & Community Development Annual Action Plan by HUD and a contract between HUD and the county authorizing the county’s Community Development Block Grant Program is a condition precedent to the county’s funding of these projects.

​ If you have any questions regarding the public hearing, 2017 preliminary recommendations, the Community Development Block Grant Program, or want to attend the hearing, accommodations will be provided, to the maximum extent feasible, to meet the needs of non-English speaking, deaf and hearing impaired, and visually impaired persons. The Spokane County Community Services, Housing, and Community Development Department will make arrangements to provide an interpreter, a signer, or a reader upon request if such a request is made at least 72 hours prior to the public hearing. If you need additional accommodations, please call 477-2588 at least 72 hours in advance.
