The Consolidated Plan is a requirement of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It must be developed by local governments in order to receive funding under the following federal programs:
- Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
- Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) Program
- HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME)
- Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Program
Consolidation of Application & More
In the past, local jurisdictions applied for each of these funding programs using separate and distinct planning procedures and timelines. In 1994, HUD combined the planning, application, and reporting requirements of these programs into a single Consolidated Plan for Housing and Community Development.
The Consolidated Plan is a comprehensive planning document that identifies overall needs for affordable and supportive housing, homeless shelters and services, and community and economic development. The Plan also identifies activities to be undertaken to meet these needs, and serves as an application for entitlement fund allocations for the programs cited within the plan.
