Consolidated Plan for Housing and
Community Development

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that all jurisdictions entitled to receive funding under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with Aids (HOPWA) programs develop a Consolidated Plan for community development no less than every five years, and an Action Plan every year. Ours are always due to HUD by May 15 and are made available for public review for 30 days prior to their submission. The Annual Action Plan covers the upcoming fiscal year -- July 1 of the plan year through June 30 of the following year. You can find the most recent five-year plan and annual action plan submission details below. To learn more about these programs generally and the process for prioritizing Public Service Grants using CDBG funds, please see our Grants Administration and Special Projects page.

By September 30 of each year, the County reports to residents and to HUD on how federal funds were spent and what was accomplished during the previous fiscal year. This is called the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). It covers the fiscal year just ended on June 30 and is made available for public review 15 days prior to submission to HUD.

The Department of Housing and Community Affairs (DHCA) also provides the Certificate of Consistency with the Consolidated Plan necessary for applicants seeking certain funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Please click here for more information on how to request a certification.

Hard copies of all Consolidated Plan materials and the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice are available for review at DHCA during normal business hours: 100 maryland Avenue, Fourth Floor, Rockville, Maryland 20850.
