Five-Year Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plans
The Snohomish County Urban County Consortium and HOME Consortium are partnerships between Snohomish County and the cities and towns in Snohomish County for the receipt of federal funds under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs.
The 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan provides the Consortia a framework to guide the investment of these funds over the five-year period to address local priority housing and community development needs that primarily benefit low- and moderate-income persons and areas of the county.
Annual Action Plans are developed each year that describe how the CDBG, HOME, and ESG funds will be used in the upcoming year to help meet the five-year goals in the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan. The Annual Action Plans include a description of specific activities to be funded and the amount of funding to be awarded to each activity.
At the end of each program year, a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is completed for the CDBG, HOME, and ESG funds. The CAPER Provides an evaluation of the progress made during the program year toward the annual and five year goals and strategies in the Annual Action Plan and Five-Year Consolidated Plan.
Citizen Participation Plan:
All persons are encouraged to participate in the development of the consolidated plan, the annual action plans, any substantial amendments to these plans, and the annual performance and evaluation report.
