SURPLUS PROPERTY DONATION PROGRAM
Surplus Property Donation Program - According to Section 125.379, Florida Statutes, and Chapter 122, Ordinance Code, the City of Jacksonville/Duval County is required every three years to adopt an inventory list of all real property within the city to which the City/County holds fee simple title that is appropriate for use as potential affordable housing. The Real Estate Division determined that no need exists for the City or any independent agency, therefore the parcels meet the affordable housing criteria.

The Consolidated Plan is designed to help states and local jurisdictions to assess their affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions. The consolidated planning process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from the CPD formula block grant programs: Community Development Block Grant ("CDBG") Program, HOME Investment Partnerships ("HOME") Program, Emergency Solutions Grants ("ESG") Program, and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS ("HOPWA") Program. The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans, which provide a concise summary of the actions, activities, and the specific federal and non-federal resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified by the Consolidated Plan. Grantees report on accomplishments and progress toward Consolidated Plan goals in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report ("CAPER").
