Consolidated and Action Plans

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires states and local communities to prepare a Consolidated Plan in order to receive federal housing and community development funding. The Consolidated Plan combines into a single document the planning and application requirements for Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnerships Program, Emergency Shelter Grant, and Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS funding.

The purpose of the Consolidated Plan is:

  • To identify the state's housing and community development needs, priorities, goals, and strategies.
  • To stipulate how funds will be allocated to housing and community development organizations and local governments.

2020-2024 Consolidated Plan for Housing and Community Development

Notice is hereby given that the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs, in coordination with the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority, plan to file their 2020-2024 Five Year Consolidated Plan for Housing and Community Development (“2020 Consolidated Plan”) with the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) on May 15, 2020, contingent on federal funding allocation decisions. In the event that federal funding is delayed, the plan may be submitted to HUD after this date. The Draft 2020 Annual Action Plan, a subset of the full Consolidated Plan, contains a funding contingency plan. This Action Plan includes a one year spending plan for the Community Development Block Grant Program, the HOME Investment Partnership Program, the National Housing Trust Fund, the Emergency Solutions Grant Program and the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program.

This document relates to programs that are funded through HUD under Title I of the Housing & Community Development Act of 1974 as amended. Annually, Indiana receives approximately $35 million for housing and community development funds. The Consolidated Plan provides guidance for allocation of those funds among housing and community development activities (e.g., economic development initiatives, infrastructure improvements, homeownership and rental programs).

Information regarding the 2020 Consolidated Plan can be obtained by writing to: Office of Community and Rural Affairs, c/o 2020 Consolidated Plan, One North Capitol, Suite 600, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204-2027. All public comments may be sent to info@ocra.in.gov.
