Housing & Community Development - 5-Year Consolidated Planning
Every five years, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that the City, as an entitlement jurisdiction, prepare a five-year Strategic Plan (also known as the Consolidated Plan) that establishes strategies for addressing the City's priority needs and identifies funding priorities for the City's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership (HOME) programs. The City of San Leandro completed the Consolidated Planning for the period July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2025:
For the FY 2020 to 2024 Consolidated Plan, the City of San Leandro completed a Priority Needs Survey (PDF) to help assess San Leandro's housing, public facilities, and social service needs as part of its update to the Five-Year Consolidated Plan. The Plan, required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), uses Census data and public comments to assess and prioritize San Leandro's housing and community development needs.
Additionally, the City of San Leandro held two community meetings in January 2020 to determine priority needs in the community in areas such as affordable housing, public facility improvements, and social services, including basic needs programs, homelessness, crisis shelters, and fair housing services. For those who were not able to attend any of these meetings, you can view the presentation.

Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires federally-funded jurisdictions to affirmatively further fair housing. To advance this work, jurisdictions are required to provide and regularly update an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI). Below is the link to the City of San Leandro's AI that was prepared for the Alameda County HOME Consortium. The Consortium consists of eight CDBG entitlement jurisdictions that includes the City of San Leandro in addition to areas of unincorporated Alameda County.
This Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice examines policies and practices that may limit residents' ability to choose housing in an environment free from discrimination. The AI assembles fair housing information, identifies any existing barriers that limit housing choice, and proposes actions to overcome those barriers. HUD defines impediments to fair housing choice as:
- Any actions, omissions or decisions taken because of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status or national origin which restrict housing choices or the availability of housing choices
- Any actions, omissions or decisions that have the effect of restricting housing choices on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status or national origin
Citizen Participation Plan for Housing & Community Development
The City must have a Citizen Participation Plan that governs the process for receiving public input during the Consolidated Plan process annually and every five years. The goal of the Citizen Participation Plan is to encourage all citizens to participate in the planning and implementation of all CDBG and HOME-funded programs and activities.
An amendment to the Citizen Participation Plan was done in response to HUD Guidance on programming CARES Act Stimulus Funding. The following amended plan was adopted by San Leandro City Council on June 15, 2020:
