Consolidated Plan Update, 2010-2014

New Five-Year Consolidated Plan for Saint Paul, 2010-2014

The City's five year Consolidated Plan is the document submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that serves as the planning guide for entitlements funded under the Community Planning and Development (CPD) formula to include grant programs. The grant programs are:

  • Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
  • Home Investment Partnership (HOME)
  • Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG)

The five-year Consolidated Plan provides an assessment of the City's housing and community development needs; a Strategic Plan for addressing these needs; and a specific one-year Action Plan for the use of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grants funds. The five-year Consolidated Plan is a document submitted to HUD with the intention to project and identify the comprehensive housing affordability strategy and community development needs. The new Consolidated Plan replaces the City's Consolidated Plan for the 2005-2009 period.
