The City of Anderson’s Community Development Department is the lead agency responsible for administering the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD’s) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. The Annual Action Plan (AAP) for Program Year 2023 is a Plan describing
the allocation of federal funding and the uses of these funds to meet goals developed that address the priority needs identified in the City’s 5-Year 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan.

These goals are consistent with HUD’s Outcome Performance Measurement System for Community Planning and Development Formula Grant Programs. Programs and activities described in this plan will primarily benefit low- and moderate-income (LMI) residents of the City of Anderson and neighborhoods with high concentrations of low- and moderate-income residents. These neighborhoods have been designated by the City of Anderson as redevelopment areas which include the following: Appleton Mill, East Anderson, West Anderson, North Anderson, South Anderson, and the West Franklin-Southwood Street Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area.
