Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

CDBG
How does the City provide grants to help the community?

The City of Antioch provides grants to non-profit and governmental agencies to provide social service programs, infrastructure improvements and economic development programs through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. In fiscal year 2013-14, the City’s CDBG allocation from HUD is $737,881.

Detail of all allocations and projects funded with CDBG funds can be found in the 2013-14 Action Plan under “Reports” at the bottom of this page.

 

Where can I find funding priorities and funded agencies and projects?

In order to receive annual allocations, jurisdictions must prepare and submit to HUD a variety of reports, all of which are advertised and available for public review. Following is a summary to help you locate the information you may be seeking:

Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) – This document includes an analysis of local factors that may impact fair housing choice, identification of specific impediments to fair housing choice, and a plan to address those impediments. The AI is one of several ways in which Consortium member are fulfilling their obligation to affirmatively further fair housing, and assure equal access to services and programs it provides or assists.

5-Year Consolidated Plan for 2010-15 – The Consolidated Plan is a detailed planning document that provides a needs assessment, describes the City’s non-housing community development needs, its housing needs and market conditions, sets out a five-year strategy identifying priorities and available resources and establishes a One-Year Action Plan that outlines intended uses of the resources. Extensive public outreach is conducted and input received in order to determine funding priorities for the five-year period. To view Antioch’s priorities for funding projects, please see Appendix 6 – Priority Needs Tables.

Annual Action Plans – Action Plans are subsidiary documents to the five-year Consolidated Plan and provide a summary of the federal CDBG and local funding available to fund actions, activities, and programs to address the priority needs and specific objectives identified in the Consolidated Plan. Action Plans for this current Consolidated Plan period are for fiscal years (FY) 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14, and 2014-15. The Action Plan tells the public what activities have been chosen that year to address the needs (as identified in the ConPlan) of Antioch’s lower income residents and areas.
Annual Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Reports (CAPER) – The CAPER details the accomplishments of actions that were proposed in the Action Plan, including the number of people who received services.

How can CDBG funding be used?

The primary purpose of the CDBG program is to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities principally for persons of lower income. CDBG funds cannot be given to individuals directly. The City utilizes the CDBG program to improve the quality of life and physical conditions in its lower income areas, and to benefit lower income residents throughout Antioch by funding nonprofit and public agencies to provide services and improvements.

How are funds allocated?

Federal funds are allocated annually to entitlement communities through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to carry out a wide range of community development activities that benefit lower income persons and households.  In Contra Costa County, all HUD-funded activities are coordinated through the Contra Costa County CDBG/HOME Consortium (Consortium), which includes the cities of Antioch, Concord, Pittsburg, Walnut Creek, and the Urban County. Consortium members jointly prepared the five year FY 2010-15 Consolidated Plan, Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice, and also coordinate and collaborate in the CDBG application process and monitoring practices.

Beginning in 2013, the Consortium is moving to a two-year/three-year funding cycle within each five year Consolidated Plan. Applications are solicited for a two-year funding period during the first two years of each Consolidated Plan, then new applications are solicited for the remaining three year period of the five-year plan.  For the 2010-15 Consolidated Plan, existing service providers who have contracts with the City of Antioch will have those contracts renewed for FY 2014-15, the third and final year of this ConPlan.

The Consortium operates on a two-year funding cycle. 

The City of Antioch will be soliciting new grant applications in early October 2014, for two-year funding for fiscal years 2015-16 and 16-17. The fiscal year begins on July 1 of each year. On Thursday, October 9, 2014, the City will join with the other Consortium member to issue a call for proposals for programs, projects and activities that will help meet priority needs as listed in the applicable Consolidated Plan. Applications will be due in early December 2014 and NO applications will be accepted before that time. In Antioch, all applications are reviewed by a subcommittee of the Antioch City Council in February and March, and projects are approved for funding at a public hearing usually held in late April or early May.

For more information about applying for CDBG funds visitwww.ccreach.org or call the City of Antioch’s CDBG consultant at (925) 779-7037.

What is a city clerk?

The City Clerk is the local official for elections, local legislation, the Public Records Act, the Political Reform Act, and the Brown Act (open meeting laws). Before and after the City Council takes action, the City Clerk ensures that actions are in compliance with all federal, state, and local statutes and regulations and that all actions are properly executed, recorded, and archived.

The statutes of the State of California prescribe the basic functions and duties of the City Clerk, and the Government Code and Election Code provide precise and specific responsibilities and procedures to follow.

The Office of the City Clerk is a service department within the municipal government upon which the City Council, all City departments, and the general public rely for information regarding the operations and legislative history of the City. The City Clerk serves as the liaison between the public and City Council and provides related municipal services.

(Information from: https://www.californiacityclerks.org/page/whatisacityclerk)

What are the responsibilities of a city clerk?

As an Elections Official, the City Clerk administers Federal, State, and Local procedures through which local government representatives are selected. The City Clerk assists candidates in meeting their legal responsibilities before, during and after an election. From Election pre-planning to certification of election results and filing of final campaign disclosure documents, the City Clerk manages the process which forms the foundation of our democratic system of government.

As a Legislative Administrator, the City Clerk plays a critical role in the decision-making process of the local legislature. As the key staff for City Council meetings, the City Clerk prepares the legislative Agenda, verifies legal notices have been posted or published, and completes the necessary arrangements to ensure an effective meeting. The City Clerk is entrusted with the responsibility of recording the decisions which constitute the building blocks of our representative government.

As a Records Manager, the City Clerk oversees yet another legislative process; the preservation and protection of the public record. By statute, the City Clerk is required to maintain and index the Minutes, Ordinances, and Resolutions adopted by the legislative body. The City Clerk also ensures that other municipal records are readily accessible to the public. The public record under the conservatorship of the City Clerk provides fundamental integrity to the structure of our democracy.

Environment C and D
What is the purpose of Antioch’s C&D Recycling Ordinance?

The purpose of Antioch’s C&D ordinance is to maintain compliance with State waste reduction legislation and the California Green Building Code. In addition, diverting waste from landfills to be recycled provides both economic and environmental benefits to your local community.

When does the Antioch’s C&D Recycling Ordinance apply to a project?

The C&D Recycling Ordinance applies to all of the following projects:

  1. All new structures.
  2. All permitted non-residential additions and alterations.
  3. Permitted residential additions or alterations that add to the conditioned area of the property.
  4. Demolition of any structure or portion of a structure larger than 120 square feet.  This includes any remodel projects of an area larger than 120 square feet.
What debris are considered C&D materials?

Construction & Demolition materials include lumber, drywall, metals, masonry (brick, concrete, etc.), carpet, plastic, pipe, rocks, dirt, paper, cardboard, and green waste related to land development. Identifying the material type of C&D debris that will be generated will help you stage the materials at the job-site and allow you to choose appropriate recycling facilities or service level needed before you start the job. For more information about C&D materials click HERE.

Where can I recycle C&D debris?

Estimating the quantity of C&D debris that will be generated will help you determine space requirements on the job-site and plan how frequently C&D debris will need to be removed.

Here is a list of Approved C&D Processing Facilities. Other facilities can be used, but diversion needs to be verified.  For more information about on where to recycle specific C&D material, here is a list of reuse and recycling facilities based on material type.

How do I use Republic Services to recycle C&D debris?

If you are planning using dumpsters or roll off bins to collect your recyclables or garbage, you must contact Republic Services, as they are the only authorized hauler of waste for the City of Antioch. To set up recycling and garbage collection service or for more information click the link above or call Customer Service at (925) 685-4711.

Because Antioch has a C&D Recycling Ordinance that requires proof that at least 65 percent of job-site waste is either recycled, reused, or salvaged – here are specific instructions to ensure success in complying with the Ordinance while using Republic Services.

At the time of contract with Republic Services, here are essential things you need to do:

  1. Tell them from the beginning that the waste is C&D debris and you need it to be recycled (make sure this is clearly noted on your contract with them).
  2. Tell them you need copies of ALL the weight tickets, and you NEED the tickets to show that the waste has been recycled.
  3. Tell them to send you the weight tickets via email as soon as they receive them.

Once you receive them, forward them onto wastemgmt@ci.antioch.ca.us. (Note: if Republic Services sends you a report or pie chart, be sure it is accurate and ALL the weight tickets accompany it.)

Can I haul my own C&D debris?

If you will be hauling your C&D debris to a salvage or recycling facility, make sure to call ahead to check hours of operation, disposal fees, and to confirm that the facility can receive and recycle your materials the required 65 percent (or greater) diversion rate. One that is determined whoever is hauling the waste materials needs to go to the area designated for C&D Recycling and ask the weighing attendant for recycling/C&D receipts.

Can I still use sub-contractors?

If you use sub-contractors, you are still responsible for any materials they take away from the job-site. Make sure you inform your sub-contractors about your C&D recycling requirements. They must take materials to a recognized recycling facility and provide you with recycling receipts. That’s your recycling credit driving away in their truck!

Does C&D material need to separated or can it be mixed?

The manner in which you collect and sort the C&D debris will determine what facility you can use for recycling. Visit Recycle Where to find facility locations that will accept recycling material from mixed loads or separated loads of clean materials.

PACE (Environment)
What is property assessed clean energy financing?

Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE), financing allows property owners to fund energy efficiency, water efficiency, and renewable energy projects with little or no up-front costs. With PACE, residential and commercial property owners living within a participating district can finance up to 100% of their project and pay it back over time as a voluntary property tax assessment through their existing property tax bill.

Why use PACE financing?

First, by offering up to 100% financing on qualifying improvements, PACE can eliminate the need to pay out of pocket for your project. In addition, your interest may be tax deductible.

Second, depending upon the type of improvements installed, repayment may be amortized for a period of up to 20 years, keeping your monthly payments low enough that your utility savings may exceed your payment, creating a net positive cash flow.

Finally, because PACE ties the loan to the property and not an individual, the loan may transfer upon sale or refinancing of the property. In other words, you may not need to be concerned about recouping the cost of your improvements if you decide to sell the property before the loan is repaid.

Who can take advantage of PACE?

In general, PACE programs offer competitive financing terms to property owners with at least some equity in their home or business and have not been delinquent on their property tax or mortgage payments. For further details concerning property eligibility (residential, commercial, and municipal) and financing terms, contact the individual PACE provides listed below.

Which property types can access PACE?

PACE financing can be used for residential, commercial, multi-family, industrial or municipal properties. Renew Finical offers programs all property types; while AllianceNRG Program and Ygrene Financing offers both programs for commercial and residential. Hero Program is for residential only and Dividend is for all commercial property types, including office, industrial, agriculture, retail, hotel, and multi-family – Non-profits and houses of worship are also eligible. To learn more, see the list of Antioch partnered individual PACE providers below.

What products and improvements can be financed with PACE?

Eligible products that can be financed with PACE may vary by individual PACE providers and administrators. In general, most products that can be permanently affixed to a property and reduce on-site electric, gas or water consumption will be considered eligible. Some examples include: attic insulation; heating, ventilation and air conditioning replacements; solar photovoltaic and thermal systems; and low-flow toilets.

Property owners wishing to finance an energy efficiency, water conservation or renewable energy project through a PACE program need to find a contractor that is signed up to participate in the programs. Each program has their own process for participating with contractors and the list of participating contractors differs. Property owners are responsible for doing their own research and deciding which program and which contractor they choose to go with.

What happens if an owner sells the property?

Since it’s an assessment on the property, it would of course be disclosed and the new buyer would have to negotiate whether to have the seller pay it off or continue the assessment.

What is the length of payment? The program is structured to tie the term of the assessments to the useful life of the measure. Terms typically range between 5 and 20 years.

Is www.helpantioch.com endorsed by the City of Antioch?

WARNING: postcards have been sent out improperly using the City of Antioch’s logo and wording to act like the program is partnering with the City. The program is promoted as a PACE program, however, it is not affiliated with any of our PACE partners. The City of Antioch has NOT endorsed or partnered with the program advertised by the coalition responsible for these postcards. If you have a concern about marketing materials that you have received, please contact the Environmental Resources Division at (925) 779-6137.
