Consolidated Plans, Annual Action Plans, and CAPERs are now available on the HUD Exchange. The Consolidated Plans, Annual Action Plans, and CAPERS page provides one place where the approved Consolidated Plans and related documents can be found, making information more accessible to HUD’s customers and partners to support planning and coordination of HUD programs. Plans can be found by grantee, year, and plan type. New or updated Consolidated Plans, Annual Action Plans, and CAPERs are pulled from IDIS and posted on the HUD Exchange nightly.
The Consolidated Plan is designed to help states and local jurisdictions to assess their affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions. The consolidated planning process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from the CPD formula block grant programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program, Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program, and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) Program.
The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans, which provide a concise summary of the actions, activities, and the specific federal and non-federal resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified by the Consolidated Plan. Grantees report on accomplishments and progress toward Consolidated Plan goals in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER).
