The Consolidated Plan is a five-year strategic plan that sets out a collaborative vision for community development in the Portland area, based on an analysis of the best available data about how well the local housing market meets the needs of area residents. A consortium of the City of Portland, Multnomah County, and the City of Gresham develops the Consolidated Plan, with public input. The 2011-2016 Consolidated Plan was approved by HUD on August 12, 2011.
The Consolidated Plan places an emphasis on how federal funds distributed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will be used to meet the local demand from low- and moderate-income households for: (1) affordable rental housing and home ownership opportunities and (2) opportunities to build incomes and assets. The expenditure of federal funds on local strategies to end homelessness has become an increasingly important part of the Consolidated Plan as economic conditions have pushed more area households into homelessness.
In addition to the Consolidated Plan, members of the Consortium also publish annual Action Plans. The Action Plans describe how federal grants such as CDBG and HOME, and other HUD housing and community development funds will be used in the coming year to carry out the strategies outlined in the Consolidated Plan.
