2020-2024 Consolidated Plan and Analysis of Impediments

Purpose of Planning Efforts

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that jurisdictions receiving Community
Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships and Emergency Solutions Grant program funds
conduct planning efforts to address regulatory requirements.

The Consolidated Plan is a five-year housing and community development strategic plan that is based on quantitative
and qualitative data collection combined with community engagement (involving county departments, city partners,
state agencies, non-profit partners and community members) to inform how to best utilize the scarce federal resources
over the five year period.

The Analysis of Impediments uses collected data to identify and analyze impediments to fair housing choice and
develop strategies to address those impediments.This planning effort also involves a comprehensive community
engagement process.

These two planning efforts will be undertaken beginning in December of 2018 and continuing through May of 2020.

Consortium Partners

Washington County and the cities of Beaverton and Hillsboro
are working jointly on these planning efforts. All three jurisdictions receive direct funding from HUD under the CDBG
program. In addition, the two cities are members of the HOME Consortium. As such, all three have responsibilities
under both planning efforts. Washington County is the lead entity for the completion of both plans and is responsible
for the submittal of the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan to HUD using the Agency's required template.
