Every 5 years the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that the Unified Government develop a five-year Consolidated Plan and an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing.
These studies are necessary for us to receive funding through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Program, and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) funds.
The five-year Consolidated Plan will include an in depth needs assessment related to housing and community needs, our priorities for the use of HUD grants, our five year goals, and our first year plan with projects to accomplish those goals (an Annual Action Plan).
The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing will look at whether everyone has similar choices for housing regardless of their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, religion, disability, or whether they have children.
