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.
