Every five years, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires the Town to develop and submit a Consolidated Plan for its investment of CDBG funds. This Consolidated Plan provides a comprehensive assessment of the Town's affordable housing and community development needs, and further identifies specific goals for CDBG spending by the Town over the next five years.
The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans developed by the Town. Each Annual Action Plan provides a concise summary of the funding awards and activities planned for the upcoming fiscal year, as well as the specific goals and priority needs to be addressed by those activities based on the current Consolidated Plan. The Town reports on all accomplishments and progress towards the Consolidated Plan goals through the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER).
