Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Areas (NRSA) Plan Meetings

There are two designated NRSA neighborhoods in the City of Beloit, which are the Merrill and Hackett neighborhoods. The NRSA Plan is a 5-year plan, and addendum to the City's 5-year Consolidated Plan. Designation of NRSA neighborhoods allows the City to invest additional CDBG funds in Public Service activities which specifically serve the Merrill and Hackett neighborhoods. To learn more about the NRSA Plan, learn about accomplishments since the last plan, and provide input on neighborhoods needs and goals for the next 5 years, attend one or both of the neighborhood meetings listed below. View the City's current and past NRSA Plan here


Steering Committees

Three Steering Committee meetings were held to receive stakeholder and service provider input regarding community needs and priorities for services. Minutes from the three meetings are available: 



What is Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding and what are the requirements?

The City of Beloit, like many cities across the nation, is awarded Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on an annual basis based on a formula. The primary objective of the CDBG program is the development of viable urban communities, which are achieved by providing the following, principally for persons of low and moderate incomes: 

  1. Decent housing
  2. A suitable living environment
  3. Expanded economic opportunities 


In order to receive its annual allocation of CDBG funds, each community must submit the following to HUD: 

  1. Consolidated Plan (updated every 5 years)
  2. Annual Action Plans 
  3. Annual Year End Reports (CAPER)


What is a Consolidated Plan? 

A Consolidated Plan is a written strategic plan outlining how the City plans to use its CDBG funding over the next 5 years based on a needs analysis. Community needs are identified through public input and local data. Each Annual Action Plan must directly tie to the associated Consolidated Plan to track and report progress in achieving these 5-year goals.  


How can I provide input on community needs to help inform 2025- 2029 Consolidated Plan goals? 

There will be a variety of opportunities for residents to provide feedback regarding community needs and priorities for the next 5 years.
