Consolidated Plan

HUD requires all jurisdictions receiving federal housing funds to submit a 5-year plan, called the Consolidated Submission for Community Planning and Development or Consolidated Plan in short. This plan combines the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Plan and Final Statement, the HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) description and the Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) application.

In preparing the plan, the Cuyahoga Housing Consortium examines the communities in its jurisdiction in order to create strategies to address community needs. The preparation of the plan is a collaborative process between Consortium member communities and the DOD who administers HUD’s entitlement funds. The plan offers local jurisdictions the opportunity to shape the various housing and community development strategies implemented in the jurisdiction. Its purpose is a development of a specific course of action for revitalization achieved by providing decent housing and suitable living environments as well as expanding economic opportunities in local communities. The Consolidated Plan attempts to achieve these goals by integrating economic, physical, environmental, community and human development in a comprehensive and coordinated fashion so that families and communities can work together and thrive. The plan also sets forth program goals, specific objectives, annual goals, and benchmarks for measuring progress.
