To give policy guidance, plan, fund, and coordinate economic development, infrastructure and human services programs and projects that improve City neighborhoods, facilitate affordable housing development, and assist Aurora residents who live at or below 80% of the Area Median Family Income ($71,300 for a four person household in 2019).
The City receives funds annually from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to address community development and housing needs. A five-year Consolidated Plan establishes priorities and each year an Annual Action Plan sets out action items and associated funding for the program year (January 1 - December 31).
