Anticipated Program Income During PY 2024/2025: Program income from the repayment of second mortgages through the Homeownership Opportunity Assistance Program or Homeowner Rehabilitation Program is estimated at $20,000. Please note that, although not funded using PY2024/2025 dollars, the Homeowner Rehabilitation Program will still be available to income-eligible homeowners during PY2024/2025 using funds from prior years.

Proposed Use of Program Income: Program income typically returns to the program which generated the income, i.e., recapture of second mortgage proceeds, through the Homeownership Opportunity Assistance Program (HOAP) and Homeowner Rehabilitation program, will be budgeted for additional homebuyer or homeowner assistance subsidy.

Beneficiaries: Activities under Project 2 serve an area benefit to East Lansing’s low-to moderate-income Red Cedar Neighborhood, and activities under Project 4 serve an area benefit to East Lansing’s low-to moderate-income Southeast Marble Neighborhood. Projects 1 and 5 each serve a housing benefit to low-to moderate-income households. Projects 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13 serve limited clientele benefits, meaning that households and individuals assisted with these activities must meet the low-to moderate-income guidelines established by HUD or be considered by HUD to be members of a clientele generally presumed to be low-to moderate-income. Project 14 is for planning and/or administrative activities.

Displacement: As required by HUD regulations, the City will follow the Federal Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Properties Acquisition Policies Act of 1970, as amended and all applicable minimized to the greatest extent possible.

Range of Activities Eligible for CDBG Funding: Activities which may be undertaken with CDBG funds include, but are not limited to: acquisition, disposition, public facilities and improvements, clearance, public services, homeownership assistance, housing rehabilitation and preservation, renovation of closed buildings, lead-based paint hazard evaluation and reduction, special economic development activities, microenterprise development, technical assistance, and planning and administration.
