Consolidated Plans

Consolidated Plan History

Beginning in 1995, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) required states and local communities to prepare a Consolidated Plan in order to receive federal housing and community development funding. The Plan consolidates into a single document the planning and application requirements for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Consolidated Plans must be prepared every five years, with updates required annually.

Plan Purpose

The Consolidated Plan serves 4 separate but integrated purposes:

  • It is a community-based planning document for the County
  • It is the application to the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development for the County's formula-based Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds
  • It describes the strategies the County will follow in carrying out its CDBG program for the period October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2018
  • It includes an annual action plan against which performance may be measured

2015 Consolidated Action Plan

The 2015 Consolidated Action Plan identifies how funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will be spent in Fiscal Year 2015 (October 1, 2015 – September 30, 2016).
