1. Executive Summary
The Annual Action Plan identifies specific housing and community development projects to be
undertaken in 2006 - 2007. These projects reflect a one-year implementation plan consistent with the
five-year goals approved in the 2003 Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan and the Action Plan
guide the use of federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds in the City of
Charlottesville and federal HOME and American Dream Downpayment Initiative (ADDI) funds in
the Thomas Jefferson Planning District (City of Charlottesville and counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna,
Greene, Louisa, and Nelson). Beginning July 1, 2006 the City of Charlottesville expects to receive
$538,861 in CDBG funds and the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission expects to
receive $911,093 in HOME funds and $18,723 in ADDI funds for a total of $929,816.

The following table illustrates the five-year goals from the 2003 Consolidated Plan, the one-year
measurable objectives for 2006 - 2007, and the source of funds.
