Our five-year plan—the Consolidated Plan or Con Plan—describes the plan for spending federal grants on things like community development, housing, home inspections, shelters for the homeless, and services for people living with AIDS.
Once the plan is approved by the Mayor and City Council, it is sent to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to show how we’ll make the best use of four federal grants that target low income residents for assistance.
The current plan covers 2013 to 2017 and is updated annually in our Annual Action Plan. Links below describe the process of approval by the Mayor and Council, as well as the needs assessment and strategic planning process. There’s also an overview of community involvement and the budget for projects funded in the first year of the plan, 2013-2014, also known as program year (PY) 39. You also can review plans from other years in our library.
The Executive Summary provides an overview of the planning process and the city’s goals for the five years.
2013-2014 ACTION PLAN (PROGRAM YEAR 39)
The Action Plan includes the projects and goals for the first year of the plan. After the plan was approved, the City received more funding, so we revised the plan to identify more projects or programs that could be funded. Take a look at the new budget and a summary of the changes that were made to the plan.
You can also read the current year of the plan as well.
STRATEGIC HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PLAN
The Strategic Housing and Community Development Plan is a write up of what was found out about needs in the community and answers specific questions asked by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regarding activities planned over the five years. An analysis of the market for housing and services was done, as well as a needs assessment, to prepare the strategic plan.
In creating plans, we hold community forums where we gather ideas and comments from the community. This file documents what was heard at the meetings, as well as what the community had to say through letters or emails.
MAYOR AND COUNCIL REPORTS
The Mayor released a draft plan and then the City Council reviewed and approved. This is a record of the revisions and outcomes from Council meetings and the Mayor’s approval of the final plan.
