Consolidated Plan for 2010-2014

Five-Year Consolidated Plan

Jurisdictions receiving Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are required to develop a multiyear Housing and Community Development Consolidated Plan (Consolidated Plan). The Consolidated Plan identifies specific strategies and objectives to guide the use of these federal grant funds over a five-year period in order to meet the local affordable housing and community development needs of the Snohomish County Urban County Consortium.

The 2010-2014 Consolidated Plan covers the period of July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2015. The 2010 Action Plan covers the period of July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011. View the 2010-2014 Consolidated Plan with 2010 Action Plan by selecting one of the specific portions of the plans listed below:

Annual Action Plan

Each year of the Consolidated Plan, the consortium is required to develop an Annual Action Plan (Action Plan). The Action Plan identifies the amount of funding from these federal grant programs expected to be received in the upcoming program year and describes how these grant funds will be used to meet the five-year strategies and objectives set forth in the Consolidated Plan. It includes a description of specific activities to be funded and the amount of funding to be awarded to each activity.

Consolidated Annual Performance & Evaluation Report

At the end of each program year, the consortium is required to report on how these grant funds were actually used. The end-of-year report is called the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). It indicates what activities were undertaken with funds available during the preceding program year and what accomplishments were achieved towards the strategies and objectives contained in the Consolidated Plan.

Each year, the CAPER goes through a review process. When the draft CAPER is available, it can be accessed on the Draft CAPER webpage. When finalized, the CAPER and Appendix packet will be added to the document list below. To view a final CAPER document, select one of the linked documents and/or the appendix packet. As a reminder, the CAPER program year begins July 1 and ends June 30:


Amendments to the Consolidated Plan and Action Plans are sometimes needed after these plans are adopted. The need for an amendment may arise, for example, if a new activity is added, if there are certain changes to an existing activity, or if there is a change in allocation priorities. Some amendments are considered substantial and require a public review and comment period prior to adoption. The following lists include substantial and non-substantial amendments to the Consolidated Plan and Action Plans which were made during the current and recent program years:
