Annual Action Plans

Each Annual Action Plan Is guided by the Five-Year Strategy, and:

  • Is developed every year
  • Identifies the most current housing and community development needs
  • Identifies resources that are anticipated during the current one-year period of the plan
  • Describes the actions and how they will be funded (this is the budget for the covered program year)
  • Identifies accomplishments

The Consolidated Plan is executed in yearly cycles.  Actions and deadlines are set, but because opportunities, crises, and other general changes can occur at any time, additional projects, programs and actions may be considered throughout the year.

CAPER Reports

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 Grants (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).
