The City of Tucson and Pima County are collaborating to address capital needs of emergency and transitional housing facilities with attention to the safety, health and green improvements for these facilities that are owned or leased by non-profit agencies. Poster Frost Mirto conducted an assessment of the homeless shelters and transitional housing in Tucson and Pima County for the purpose of developing capital and maintenance public policy and investment strategies to make that specialized housing inventory safer, healthier and greener for the agencies and their clients.

The public is invited to participate in fourteen (14) jointly held City of Tucson and Pima County forums to discuss community needs that can be addressed with annual entitlement funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The City receives approximately $8 million per year under the following federal programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG); HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME); Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG); Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA). Public input received at these forums will be used to prepare the FY 2016 City of Tucson/Pima County 5-year Consolidated Plan. The FY 2016 Plan will incorporate the community needs, available resources, strategies and priorities for the 5-year period beginning on July 1, 2015. Proposed Consolidated Plan projects and activities are defined by federal program regulations and include affordable housing, public facilities, human services, economic development and neighborhood improvements.  The FY 2016 Plan will replace the existing 2010 5-year Consolidated Plan that expires on June 30, 2015. A draft Consolidated Plan will be released in the spring of 2015 for a 30-day public comment period prior to taking it to the Mayor and Council and Board of Supervisors for adoption. The public is encouraged to attend the public forums.
