The CDBG Citizens Advisory Committee is charged with the task of providing recommendations to the City Council for social service projects that will benefit Vista’s low and moderate income residents. The CDBG Citizens Advisory Committee was created in 1991, when the City was recognized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as an “entitlement” city, meaning that CDBG funds are transmitted directly to the City. The Committee uses the City’s Five-Year Consolidated Plan to recommend annual priority areas for funding, which are presented to the City Council for adoption. Based on the annual priorities, a Request for Proposals is issued to identify projects within the community that address the annual priorities. The Committee reviews the proposals and makes recommendations to the City Council for projects that can assist the City in meeting its community development goals.
