Consolidated Plan: Five Year Plan

Five-Year Consolidated Plan

Our five-year plan, the Consolidated Plan or Con Plan, describes how we are spending federal grants on areas that have the greatest needs. This includes community development, affordable housing, shelters for homeless persons, help for small business owners, services for people living with HIV/AIDS, and more.

Once the plan is approved by the Mayor and City Council, it is sent to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The plan demonstrates how we’ll make the best use of four federal grants that benefit low-income residents.

The current plan covers the years 2018 to 2022. The links below describe the process of approval by the Mayor and City Council, as well as the needs assessment and strategic planning process. There’s also an overview of community input and the budget for projects funded in the first year of the plan (2018-2019) also known as Program Year (PY) 44.

2018-2022 Strategic Housing and Community Development Plan

The Strategic Housing and Community Development Plan summarizes the needs in the community. Additionally, it answers specific questions asked by HUD regarding activities planned over the five years. Furthermore, an analysis of the market for housing and services was done with the needs assessment to prepare the strategic plan. You can find the 5-year plan hosted on HUD's website.

Annual Action Plan

The Action Plan includes the projects and goals for the first year of the plan. After the plan was approved, the City received more funding so we revised the plan to identify more projects or programs that could be funded.

Community Participation

In creating plans, we hold community forums where we gather ideas and feedback from the community.
