The Development and Administration of the Consolidated Plan
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires communities who receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to complete a five year Consolidated Plan that identifies general areas of need in the community and how to address them, particularly in the areas of housing, economic opportunity, and community development.
The Strategic Plan is a section of the Consolidated Plan that provides a detailed description of the objectives, proposed accomplishments, priorities and strategies for use of CDBG funds.
The Housing and Community Development Department is responsible for the development and administration of the Consolidated Plan. The Community Development Advisory Commission uses it for the planning, implementation, review, and assessment of the CDBG program.
For more information please call the Housing and Community Development Department at 563.589.4239.
Consistency with the Consolidated Plan
The City of Dubuque reviews applications for some federally funded applications and programs to ensure the request for funding is consistent with the needs identified in the current Consolidated Plan.
The Housing & Community Development Department provides support for the HUD funded Continuum of Care Programs by certifying consistency with the Consolidated Plan.
