2015-2020 Consolidated Plan
Washington County Affordable Housing and Community Development Consolidated Plan 2015-2020
The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) calls the Consolidated Plan a “unified vision for undertaking community development actions.” It describes and analyzes the jurisdiction’s affordable housing and community development needs, establishes priorities, and provides a five-year strategy for addressing those needs within the resources available.
In Washington County, the creation of the plan is a collaborative process involving community partners, local governments and county agencies as well as input from beneficiaries and the general public.
HUD requires local jurisdictions to prepare a Consolidated Plan every five years as a means of directing and managing the flow of federal housing and community development resources to meet priority needs. The priorities and strategies in the Consolidated Plan affect how the County allocates Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds to community partners to address the needs of low and moderate income residents.
