About The Consolidated Plan
Every five years, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires the recipients of Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funds to prepare a five-year Consolidated Plan that provides the framework for the process that will be used by the City to identify housing homeless, special populations, and community and economic development needs and resources and to tailor a strategic plan for meeting those needs.
Please note: Not included in the Web versions of the plan are the Application for Federal Assistance forms, the various certifications the City must file with HUD, or the notices of public hearings. All of these materials may be obtained by contacting Ms. Joy Pierson at 513-352-6122.
