The Consolidated Plan process is intended to encourage communities to allocate federal resources in order to address local needs and market conditions. The Consolidated Plan describes the market and inventory conditions, the housing needs of owners , renters, homeless and special needs populations, and community development needs. The 2010-2014 Consolidated Plan sets forth five-year strategies and performance benchmarks for measuring progress.
The Action Plan is a document that describes the activities that will be undertaken, goals and objectives that will be pursued, and a spending plan for Community Development and HOME funds each year.
